Vintage Television

Do you see what I see? 
Or, I am the only one out there warped enough to not see a sketch challenge
 but a vintage television set?

Well, my card looks nothing like a tv.  Instead it is a simple fresh take on the sketch, it's free of paper or card stock layers.  I used a spring toned watercolor background to base my flowers for the main square panel of the sketch.  I also took some liberties with the diagonal banner by wrapping Gold Metallic Thread around and around.  I wanted this element of the challenge to be as visually light as the watercolored layer.
The Flowering Fields images are stamped with Archival Basic Black Ink and accented with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  A trio of Subtle Candy Dots in just the right place adds a certain something that I really like.  I put them on and literally nodded my head and thought "oh yeah that's a perfect finishing touch--I'm so awesome!"
Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what the rest of the Design Team have created using this new sketch challenge.  (I doubt they saw what I saw).


  1. Wow! Fabulous card! Visually stunning! Love, love, love the metallic thread wrapping! Thanks for being part of HSS.

  2. I DO see the TV! LOL Anybody younger wouldn't know what that is :D I love your take on the sketch, your watercolor panel is beautiful and fresh!

  3. I totally see the TV, now that you mention it! I adore the soft, pretty colors you've used...they sure do complete those stamps! The embellishments you've chosen are super cool too!
