I do love a sketch challenge. In fact, they're probably my favourite kind of challenge. The sketch at The Paper Players is a great one - so open and versatile. I think I'll tuck it away for future use.
I stamped in some grasses in Mossy Meadow. I die cut some grass in Mossy Meadow card and from a piece of card watercoloured in Mossy Meadow.

Hello all! It's a different kind of post today.
I'm sharing with you the launch of my You Tube Channel, Thinking Stamping.
There's only four videos up at the moment, to give you a taste of what's to come.
I plan on three playlists.
Starting Stamping is basic information you need to start your hobby. It's based on hearing lots of my class people saying that they just don't know where to get started when they look at the catalogue.
Simple Stamping will be cards that are quick, easy and don't require you to have a Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine or similar. These cards might show you, or remind you, of some techniques but will be able to be done quickly and without expensive gear.
The Tutorials series will be for the avid crafter. These cards may well include more advanced techniques as well as heavy-hitting equipment.😀
I'm aiming to add something new each week, so if you like what you see, don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss any new videos.
As a taster, here's my tutorial on a card I made for Colour INKspiration, using the Artistically Layered bundle with an ink blended and over-stamped background. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm loving the new Flowing Flowers stamp set. The bright Spring colours along with the emphasis on a clean and simple styling at CAS Colours and Sketches gave me a chance to try it out in a different way.

Between Christmas, the birth of a grandchild, setting up a You Tube channel and summer holidays my craft room has been much neglected. Sitting on my desk since before Christmas was the brand new set, For the Record. When I bought it, I thought it had lots of scope for that difficult beast - the Masculine Card.
Today I made it through the door and got the set opened up. Inspiration came from the sketch at Sunday Stamps.
