BLOG HOP | Hello Card – Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

If you go on a hop today, you’re sure of a lovely surprise! Please join us for this month’s blog hop and instead of working from a sketch, we were challenged with a colour scheme.

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

I love a good smooshing, so I gave that a go with the above colours. And you can totally smoosh with just the pens! I bought the new In-Colour pen set, so I drew on my messy mat with the brush end and spritzed with water. With the other colours, I just pressed my ink pad on my mat and spritzed. Make sure you use an archival black ink pad!

Top Tip! Allow your layers of colours to dry in between smooshing – you can use a heat tool to speed things up.

Thank you for going on our hop today. Next up is Lisa!
