We have a double challenge for you today at Try Stampin on Tuesday

Use the Technique of Mixing up your Fonts and/ or using the sketch.  I chose to try both.

I started off with some Whisper White card stock from SU and masked off a centre panel.  I then used two Tim Holtz Distress inks - Bundled Sage and Picked Raspberry and Soft Sky from SU and sponged them onto the white card.  The set I've used is an old retired SU set called Fresh Vintage which I haven't used in such a long time - it always seems strange now using wooden stamps instead of the cling or rubber - do you find that?  In fact in some ways it's much easier - I didn't need to hunt for a block.  I used Versamark to stamp the medallion type stamp and then used some of SU's copper embossing powder which really makes it stand out against the pale inks.

I actually cheated with mixing up my fonts and used another retired SU set called Yay You.  This sentiment was already in this set - all mixed up - all I did was cut it up into three different parts.  I added it to a piece of Soft Sky card stock which had been cut using a stitched framelit.  The little flowers are also from the same stamp set - I embossed them in the Bronze onto some dark red card stock and cut them out and added them with dimensionals.

 I look forward to seeing how you interpret the challenge and whether you go for both options.

Fiona - your card is really pretty with its soft background and bold elements. You did a great job incorporating the TSOT sketch, AND the mixed fonts! You are a great TSOT DT creative talent!!! -Donna
