A rainy long weekend

This is a past MFT sketch that I really liked and I still wanted to use it.  These colours are so fresh and lovely and just screaming summer, which of course, it isn't here, it is rainy and grey.  But there is a remedy for that - going to the Craft Show - it is one of the very few we get, so I shall make the most of it.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white, Tempting Turquiose
Patterned paper - Jillibean Sourp Blossom Soup
Stamps - TE Oops a Daisy
Ink - SU Island Indigo, Real Red, Lucky Limeade
Dies - MFT file tab, Fishtail Flags Stax
Ribbon - Vandoros
Buttons - PTI
Twine - SU


I am trying to incorporate more patterned paper into my cards, afterall, I have alot to use up.  So with the Hero Arts challenge in mind and the Jillibean Soup pad still out I came up with this design for the latest Sweet Sunday sketch.  I coloured the flowers with Memento markers, a trick Jennifer McGuire did a few months back.  Whilst it didn't give the crispness of Copics, I am happy with the results.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Kraft, white
Patterned paper - Jillibean Soup Blossom Soup
Stamps - HA Flower Background,  Tall Flower
Ink - Memento Pear Tart, Tuxedo Black
Various Memento Markers
Die - MFT Fishtail Flags Stax
Flowers - Kaisercraft
Brad - Laura Ashley
