Wow, these challenges just keep on comin’! 🙂 I’m back with another card made for the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge #132. (Challenge #131 is still open for voting – if you’d like to vote for my last card, it’s #2; I ‘flipped’ the design upside down (totally legit-we’re allowed to do that!) for it to suit the set I used. You can click HERE to vote!
Here’s what challenge #131 card looks like, so you know you’re voting for the right one!
For this new challenge, we were given another card sketch – here it is:
Here is my interpretation of the sketch:
I had just received my new order from Stampin’ Up! and I just HAD to try out the new Colourbox Chalk Inks and the Chalkboard paper.
Using the stamp set Everything Eleanor, I stamped the flowers on the Chalkboard paper in Rose Coral, and hand-cut them. I then stamped the label shape in Aquamarine onto Whisper White card stock, and hand cut that out. Doesn’t it look amazing on the white?! On the Whisper White panel, I stamped the flourish in Rose Coral chalk ink, then using the Butterfly Basics set, stamped the border stamp in Yellow Citrus Chalk ink. I think that all of the colours look amazing on Whisper White, and the have a beautiful, smooth feeling to them. I was impatient to put my card together, so I used my Heat Tool to ‘set’ the ink. Since it’s consistency is heavier than our classic ink – more like a craft ink – you do have to allow a bit of drying time.
I layered the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a card base of Soft Sky, after rounding the left corners using the Project Life Corner punch.
I cut off the top 1/3 of a Doily, and layered it underneath the Aquamarine label shape. I used the Butterfly Basics ‘Happy Birthday’ stamp to stamp on top of both the label & doily in Memento Black ink, and attached the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off the card, in place of a bow I stamped & hand cut the smallest butterfly from the Butterfly Basics set, and added 3 Candy Dots.
So that’s my latest challenge card; I hope you like it, and are enjoying my new creative ‘bent’!
