Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge # 8


Here is the card I made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge # 8. LOL, I know, it doesn't seem like I create anything without sketch challenges... :P I just think they're great... Especially when you don't have a lot of time to play. Beate's original post can be found here.

I started with a 5" square card in Wild Wasabi, then cut out two strips of paper. The DCWV patterned paper was cut to 2 1/2" x 5", and the Groovy Guava strip was 3" x 5". I used my corner rounder to scallop the edges of the Groovy Guava, and then used my piercing tool to poke holes across both sides of the strip. I cut out my two circles using my Coluzzle, and attached them to the back of the strip. Then I stamped my sentiment on Soft Sky using Karen Foster Snap Stamps in 1/4 and 1/8 sizes and adhered it to the strip.

The flower image was stamped 4 separate times, and each image was cut out separately (i.e. the center of the flower, the Soft Sky petals, the Guava petals, and then the whole image). I watercolored the flowers and assembled them with mini pop dots.

Details:

Paper - Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, Whisper White, DCWV Floral Pack

Stamps - Lizzie Anne Designs Jolies Fleurs, Karen Foster Snap Stamps Casual 1/4 & 1/8

Ink - Stazon Black, Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, River Rock

  8. Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your card for this sketch. The scallops really add that extra "something"! I like the way the flower turned out as well. I don't have the patience to cut out four layers! Good for you!
