Indescribable Gift for Freshly Made Sketches

Dear Blackberry Bliss! It's been too long! First there was fall and all the oranges and reds, then Christmas with red and green or blue and green! Finally, I am able to see you again and what a delight it is! As I was thinking of a colour scheme for my Freshly Made Sketches entry this week, I spotted the Park Lane DSP in my cupboard and immediately thought of Blackberry Bliss, Sahara Sand and a little Old Olive thrown in for good measure! Then I saw a new stamp set I hadn't yet used, Indescribable Gift, and felt in the mood for some good ol' Blendies colouring.

Here's the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches that I was working with:

Such a cute layout and perfect for Valentine's Day!

  • There is no Blackberry Bliss Assortment of Blendabilities, but as you can see, the Rich Razzleberry Assortment works well because of the different shades.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and started with the darkest shade of Rich Razzleberry first and worked toward the lighter shades. Once coloured, I used the ecutter to cut out the blossom image.
  • There is also no Sahara Sand Assortment so I used a regular Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker for the trunk.,
  • The heart and the sentiment are from the Groovy Love Stamp set and the sentiment is die cut with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelit. I used my ecutter to crop the heart which is just slightly too large for the Sweetheart Punch.
  • The Sahara Sand Lace Trim is from the Occasions Catalogue and the Blackberry Bliss Velvet trim is part of the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the same catalogue.
And that's a wrap for Thursday!  See you tomorrow with another As You See It Challenge!
