As You See It 165 - Design Team Card

Welcome to the penultimate challenge of 2017 at As You See It Challenge. It's hard to know where the year has gone - but I do know where it's going. Christmas, you say? Sure. New Year? Sure. But with the New Year comes the Special Occasions catalogue and Saleabration! I've used one of the forthcoming product suites, Petal Palette,  for Amanda's lovely sketch.

The watercolour style stamps in Petal Palette lend themselves to colouring in any medium but I have used the new alcohol markers, Stampin' Blends, which are also available in the Special Occasions catalogue.

I'm sure you know by now that I'm not a huge user of Designer Paper, but I couldn't resist the black and white patterns in the Petal Passion DSP stack. These too can be coloured.

It comes with a whole lot of sentiments in this funky font. I think I'm also going to get a lot of use from the dotty background stamp that's part of the set too. And look at that lacy die cut, part of the Petals and More thinlit dies.

Join us in this sketch challenge and show us how you see it.

Remember also that this blog will shortly be changing its name to Thinking Stamping. If you follow me by email - thank you - and you will be automatically redirected to this blog. If you lose it, you'll find me at
