Thinking of You – Blue Distress – Sketch

This week’s challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is You’re On My Mind. The current challenge at Cards in Envy is Feeling Blue and Distressed. Using the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, I created this card and would like to participate in all three challenges.

About my card. First I have to tell you that I dislike step stamping. I keep trying it and I still dislike it. This month’s kit from My Monthly Hero (sold out) had these waves in it (3 step stamping) and I have to tell you I still had trouble. I had to ink them up several times to get good coverage. I used MMH  ink included in the kit, MFT inks and my favorite inks Memento. I used distress inks on these images because that is the challenge at Cards In Envy. The kit came with dies BUT did not come with a die for the sailboats (another big disappointment). I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out. There are clouds with step stamping as well. I will probably be selling this set shortly because I really don’t care for all that little stamping and it reminds me of the silhouette stamps from the previous month’s kit. Sorry for the rant.

The papers are from Seaside collection from AC Moore, the Washi Tape is from my stash. The sentiment is also from the kit.
