RS #14

I am having so much fun using Melissa Bickford's new Flipping Out stamp set and dies.  It could be that I can't wait for summer to arrive so that I can wear my flip flops every day and every evening.  This weeks RetroSketch is based on a card made by Kasia Curry.  I stamped the barn board on a separate strip of white cardstock in Soft Stone and adhered it to the white card base.  I was having some trouble with the lighting, it looks better in person--not so washed out.

**NOTE:  If you are arriving here from RetroSketches, then you will notice that I updated the card using Classic Kraft ink on the barn board.  The Soft Stone initially used did not photograph well and the darker colour definitely makes the flip flops pop more.





All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores
Stamps: Flipping Out, Background Basics Farm & Barn
Ink: Classic Kraft, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores, Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Flippin Out

Another great card. I can see that you are having as much fun as I am with this set. I love how you combined it with the barn boards again in your interpretation of this sketch.

There are those flip-flops again! How handy to be a flip-flop factory. They look great, and make me wish I had bought that set and dies. Great job on the sketch, with your signature CAS style!

Tracey, Very cute card. Those flip flops are just too sweet. I didn't get that set, but may have to re-think it and put it on my wish list. Have seen so many cute cards with this stamp set.
