This week we have a great sketch for you:
So many fun elements to play with on this sketch! I decided to change the focal shape from a circle; here’s what I did:
When I first saw the sketch, the easel from the Painter’s Palette set jumped to mind, so I had to go with it! 🙂
I started with a card base of Basic Black cardstock, then layered a panel from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack. This was perfect, as it gave me another chance to play with the new In Colours that I love! I stamped the large brush stroke from Work of Art in Peekaboo Peach onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, then angled a piece of Basic Black cardstock behind it, and attached them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then laid another strip of the same Playful Palette DSP pattern horizontally, and angled a piece of Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon on top of that.
I stamped the easel onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, and cut it out by hand. Then I stamped the flowers, leaves and butterflies from the Garden in Bloom stamp set, using Memento Black in for the outlines, Peekaboo Peach for the flowers, Sweet Sugarplum for the butterflies and Emerald Envy for the leaves. I used the retired Squares Framelits to cut out the middle from the easel, and popped it over the ‘painting’ using the new Foam Adhesive Strips. I attached my art piece to the card front using Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Memento Black ink; I used the Paper Snips to cut banner ends on one end, and glued it next to the easel. I stamped the push-pin in Memento as well, hand cut it, and added it over the sentiment with a Glue Dot.
I think this is a fun card, and like I said, I really like the sketch from which we worked.
