Challenge Entry: 365 Cards - Day 209 - Super Sketchy Sunday

Here is my take on the latest sketch over at 365 Cards Challenge blog. :)

Zoom in to Barefoot Amy...

** TOP TIP **

Before I apply any stamped image on a layout, I would initially do a trial/test stamping on a scrap sheet of paper/cardstock.  This ensures that I am using the most appropriate shade of ink that works best with my layout.  And also this lets me practice on the correct pressure that I should apply when stamping to make sure that all the details of my stamp is transferred on to the layout.

Cardstock: American Crafts
Patterned Paper: Martha Stewart
Digi Image: Crafty Sentiments Design - Barefoot Amy
Stamped Image: American Crafts
Stamped Sentiment: Hero Arts
Ink: Versafine Crimson Red, Tsukineko Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid
Ribbon: American Crafts
Puncher: EK Success

Here is the original sketch ...
