Highlight the Details – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are Highlighting the Details.  This could be focusing on a part of a stamped image, using a variety of different mediums such as water color, markers, ink, etc.  There are around 12 of us focusing on Highlighting the Details.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to pull out one of my favorite stamps from this Idea Book, Know that I Care.

I used the Feels Like Home paper pack, Espresso Pigment Ink Pad, Stitched Square Thin Cuts and the Quilted Thin Cuts. I started by stamping the flowers from the Know that I Care stamp set using the Espresso Pigment Ink Pad.

I then used the small stitched square from the Quilted Thin Cuts.  I cut out four squares so that they lined up (I did mess up a bit when lining up the flowers on one of the squares). I then chose to color one flower using Sage and Sugarplum.  I did add a bit of the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush to all the areas I colored Sugarplum.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto DARLYS RECKER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork Highlighting the Details!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!
