The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #20

Welcome from Anna's blog.
This week is Sketch Challenge #10.



This is the first time that I have used this stamp set which is from the new Occasions Catalogue. I purchased the photopolymer set which makes it very easy to place the stamp exactly where you want it. There really are some lovely elements in this set. I love the delicate butterfly dies that come with the bundle, they are very feminine. I did a little bit of masking this week and I am happy with the effect that was produced to give a soft but vibrant background. I also used velum for my banner layer which is a little hard to see in the photo. This was used to soften the green fern stamp that is underneath.
