Welcome to our CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is called Family is Forever, a sweet set of 7 stamps. This month we have 80 (!!) Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this lovely SOTM and other great CTMH products. If you have come here from PAMELA'S BLOG, you are on the right path! You can find a complete list of participating consultants HERE.
So I've already done a number of projects using this stamp set (linked at the bottom of this post), because I am in love with this sweet tree image. So I knew I still wanted to use that image, but I wasn't sure how I was going to do it. I browsed my favorite sketch blogs, but I kept coming back to the current Mojo Monday Tall and Skinny Sketch. I kept telling myself that this tree was too large for a tall and skinny card, but apparently I won't listen to myself! I masked a circle using a post-it Zindorf style, and sponged on my clouds and grass sticking to the Color Throwdown challenge colors. I used Pacifica, Olive, and Canary/Creme Brule, plus a bit of Colonial White Pigment ink sponged where I needed to lighten the clouds. Then I stamped my Tree over the top using Memento Tuxedo Black.
I hit up my stash bowl, where I drop all my odds and ends from previous projects to create my embellishment cluster at the bottom corner. I colored some metal words with alcohol markers. Then I used my Stardust Gelly Roll to dot across the words and blended that with my finger. I topped that off with some Platinum Stickles, also blended with my finger which really added some depth to the colored metal. I used the same combo around the edge of my moon for a bit of shimmer.
Now hop on over to JEN'S BLOG to see more fabulous September SOTM goodness!
