Feeling Sketchy #55

Well this might be my last post for a couple of weeks. My craft room is about to be packed up ready for a move, so not sure when I will have it all organized and ready for creativity again. Not tooooo long I hope!
This weeks sketch at Feeling Sketchy is a nice and simple one so I have kept my card just that, nice and simple! I wanted to use the stamp block technique where you ink up a block and stamp it out giving you a  rustic background. Well on this occasion the block that I needed to use for the size I required didn't want to play nice so I had to compromise. After stamping with the block and not getting anywhere near enough colour that I was hoping to achieve, I masked the edges and added more colour with a sponge....happy! With the masks still in place I then stamped the delight flower and sentiment from Stampin' Ups! Blooming with Kindness set.
This is the out come:

The brown strips were swiped with a touch of white craft ink to give it that linen look that the background paper has. This is a quick but interesting technique to use.
This is the sketch

I hope you like my card......I don't know how I will cope with no card making for a couple of weeks but I will enjoy looking at everyone's lovely creations....if I get time. lol

Until then.....happy stamping!

Wow, great take on the sketch & techniques. The rustic sponging goes so well with the linen-look and stamping. Thanks for playing along with Feeling Sketchy this week.
