April Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a Sketch Challenge. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

I decided on the beautiful Summer Shadows Dies for this sketch. These are both a sneak peak and a returning favourite in our upcoming NEW Annual Catalogue. They were a Sale-a-Bration item last year and now they are back to purchase. I'm very happy because they co-ordinate with the Shaded Summer stamp set, which is a favourite of mine. Anyway, here is my card:

I cut out all the dies in white cardstock and then applied ink colours using the Blending Brushes. This gives a really soft, pretty effect. 
I decided on most of the 2021-23 In Colors for my colour scheme - Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Polished Pink, with a 'splash' of Pool Party. I've used the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder in the background, for some subtle pattern. 

The sentiment is from Shaded Summer, and I've used some Pool Party Sheer ribbon and a few Iridescent Rhinestones for some sparkle.
