Apothecary Art - FMS32

Well here we are at the end of April - there's just one day left of the Occasions Mini catalogue.  I'm featuring the Apothecary Art set (and the Labels Framelits dies) for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  They're my favourite 2 products out of the Mini ... I hope to see them both again soon in the new 2012-2013 Annual Catalogue ... 

I did stretch my card out instead of making it a square.  I also tried a new technique, which you can only see if you look closely ... I stamped the main image in Wisteria Wonder and then added little highlights to the flowers with my Concord Crush marker to add some shading and dimension.  I'll have to try again with other colours to see if it's more noticeable.

While playing around with these colours, I noticed that Concord Crush is pretty much the same colour as my sons' football teams!  Perhaps since practice starts this week, I was more attuned to it?  I think I'll have to stock up on more of it now since it is retiring at the end of May!

Supplies used for my card:
Stamps: Apothecary Art
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush
Marker: Concord Crush
Paper: Concord Crush, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, 2010-2012 In Colors DSP
Tools: Labels Framelits dies, Pennant punch (to make the banner)
Other: Basic Rhinestones and Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'
