Sweet Sketch Wednesday with Bugaboo Stamps

Welcome to Wednesday and a new sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where we are sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps with a prize of 7 digital stamps valued at $21.00.

I have been so excited to show you what I created with the image that I chose to work with from Bugaboo which is called "Fancy Umbrella #4" and can be found here in the store.
I will warn you that I have a few pictures in this post but I just couldn't not show you all of them.

My sketch you will find on the box top that I recycled into a holder for a set of cards, all using this adorable image. I love this and can't wait to try something else with it.

My die cut flower is a Sizzix flower 5 and I thought it looked so nice with the flowers on the umbrella. I also used the negative as a stencil for my cards.

Using Tim Holtz distress inks I sponged my flowers and then used the inks to color my umbrellas, each in a different color and with a different sentiment. These were so much fun.
I did want to show you the cards individually as well so that you can see them a little clearer.

By mixing the colors, I thought it gave it a watercolor effect which is what I had in mind. I hope you enjoyed my project for today and will stop by at
Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see what my teammates have to show won't be disappointed.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to be by to visit with you soon, Rick and got a chance to get away for a quick overnight trip and now have to catch up from the last 3 days. Missed seeing you guys, but will stop in to see what you've been up to.
Happy Day all!!!!

Oh Patti, this is such a fun idea and what a great gift idea. I love them all just so cute and such pretty colours you've used. I must try that for an end of year gift for a teacher, our year ends in December so that's always a great time for gift ideas. Wishing you a wonderful week of crafting.

Patti I'm just crazy about this card set you made. How creative to use the sketch layout on the box and then the complimentary cards. So elegant and pretty. It's so fun to be on two teams with you - your creativity is inspiring.
