International Blog Highlights - Friend - #GDP058 - Sketch Challenge







Hello and welcome back to my blog entry for today.

Today I am part of an International Project Highlights blog using current Stampin' Up!® Products. We have all created this gallery of projects for you to be inspired by! We would love it if you could visit every one of our blogs and see a close up of our projects. You can see the gallery below and this will be on every blog that you click on so you will never be lost.

I have also chosen to have a crack at this wonderful sketch challenge from Teneale Williams of the Global Design Project team.


Here is my card.

'FRIEND'

Inside View
#Awesomelyartistic #KOCreationscards #Handmade #Internationalbloghop #Stampinup #Smooshing

Items used for this card:

  • Emerald Envy A4 Card stock and Ink pad
  • Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz, Bermuda Bay and Peekaboo Peach  Ink Pads
  • Very Vanilla A4 Card stock
  • Stamp Set  - Awesomely Artistic
  • Water Colour Paper, Vellum A4 card stock 
  • Moroccan Designer Washi Tape 
  • Kraft 12 x 12 card stock 
  • Black Stazon ink pad and 
  • Wink of Stella in Clear.

Method:

  • My base has been cut to 10.5 x 14.5 cm then all the other layers have been cut accordingly.
  • I smooshed my inks onto my watercolour paper and then stamped my images once dry. 
  • When dry I cut this down to 8 x 8 cm and layered this the same as my base. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to place this onto my card base.
  • I also stamped the same flowers onto Vellum card stock and then fussy cut around them. 
  • I glued these over the top of the water color image, just to soften some of the intense colour.
  • I used Wink of Stella on the dragonflies wings.
  • the sentiment was stamped and placed last of all.
