Great Colors, Great Sketch, Great News!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! I am enjoying having my parents live here so I can celebrate some of these special days with them.

Today I made a Polished Stone background for my SCS Color Challenge card. It is one of my favorite techniques, and I hope you will try it if you haven't before. It's really simple and makes awesome unique backgrounds. Let me know what you think of the tutorial.

I substituted Bashful Blue for Soft Sky - I love SS so much I am out! Better stock up soon!
I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch found HERE.

I made my Polished Stone background, then cut
the strips out and stamped the Verve Visual blossoms on the Polished Stone as well. I used my Versamark pad to stamp the small blossom on the Bashful Blue cardstock piece. If you scroll all the way down this page, you will see some examples of Polished Stone colors I have made.

And now for the great news! As many of you know, I just love the humor and design of Hambo Stamps. Yesterday I was asked by Monica to be a Guest Designer for July! I am very excited about this, and am looking forward to designing some new projects with new stamps! Stay tuned!
