Another week gone by…can you believe it. It’s already time for another Sketch Challenge. Make sure to hop on over to Stamping 411 and play along. This was a really fun sketch and I can’t wait to see what y’all came up with!!
Here is the sketch:
….and her is my take on it.
The base of my card is cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half. the Mat is 4 x 5 1/4 and run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and popped up with dimensionals. The ribbon was taped to the back of this mat.
The bliss mat is Old Olive and measure 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 and the Vanilla Image piece is 2 1/8 x 2 1/8. The dotted mat is actually a scarp of Christmas DSP I had sitting around and cut to 2 3/8 3 5/8 and the image piece us 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I did the same image three times by inking up my stamp with my Rose Red Marker and Old Olive Marker. I had to extend the stems and hand draw a few leaves. For the flower image I just took my aqua painter and did a water wash to drag some color and it turned just the right contrast of pink by drawing from the edges. I stamped three leaves and the Butterfly and cut them out to resemble the sketch. Those of you that know me KNOW I don’t add a lot of saying to card….that way they are ready to go for whatever occasion I may need them. hence the Butterfly…..which I by the way colored with my Rose Red Marker and edged with Old Olive, huffed, Stamped and cut out. It’s attached with a glue dot. the bow is done the rose Red Seam Binding and I added a few pearls to the flourish. That’s it. Hope you enjoy it and will play along with us this weekend. Thanks for stopping in.
