Soft Olive Vase

Oops! I got sucked into my day and totally forgot I hadn't posted yet. Today's card is my attempt at Amy's Super Sketch Sunday challenge this week. I did stray a little, but I got all the patterned papers in there. :) I had determined to do the sketch to the letter, but when I cut out my vase, I forgot to leave room for a sentiment below it, so modifications were necessary.

I thought the color challenge over at Verve was kind of fun, so I decided to play with just a few of the colors again. I love the Soft Sky and Olive together, but I kind of wish now that I had used a different color than pumpkin pie. Something about the card seems a little off too me. Maybe the ribbon just gave it too boxy of a feel. Anyhow, I started by inking the solid vase from Floral Whimsy with Soft Sky and rocking just one side and the bottom edge in Old Olive, for a little shading. Next I stamped the outline vase in Old Olive right over the top of it and added the stems in Old Olive as Well. I stamped the small flower clusters in Soft Sky on each blade and then one down at the base of the vase. Next I added some shadows with a soft gray marker.

The sentiment is from Wonderful Wishes and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and punched out with a 1-1/4" circle punch, then matted on Soft Sky prints and Bali Breeze designer paper. The background panels are the same lines of DP as well. I finished off with a little Soft Sky Double Stitched ribbon and some dotted accents with an Old Olive marker and a few highlights with a mixture of Dazzling Diamonds and Diamond Glaze.
