500th Blog Post! and Simply Sketched Sneak Peek

Wow!  This is my 500th blog post!!!  Kind of snuck up on me, but I think that calls for a celebration . . . perhaps a challenge with a prize?   What do you think?

While I get that figured out, I wanted to share a sneak peek of a new hostess stamp set called Simply Sketched.  Here it is:

After I stamped the image for this card, I thought it would be fun to try spritzing the paper with Vanilla Smooch Spritz before I stamped, to get more of a watercolor look to the image.  Here's how that turned out:

And, here are close-ups of the stamped images so you can see the difference better:

Supplies Used:

Stamps:  Simply Sketched (hostess sneak peek)
Ink:  Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade (retiring), and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Markers
Paper:  Lucky Limeade (retiring), Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory Card Stock; Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (Spring Catalog)
Accessories:  Ovals Collection Framelits, Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon (retiring), Very Vintage Designer Buttons (sneak peek), Whisper White Baker's Twine

Thanks for stopping by!
