Welcome to this week’s Watercooler Wednesday sketch challenge! This week I’m playing hostess – it was my turn to choose the sketch, so this is what I chose:
I really like the different layers, and the possibility for textures….whatever you want to do. The colours shown in the sketch don’t mean anything – choose your own! I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Here is my card:
Yes, I’m still having fun with my Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jar Framelits bundle! 🙂 Not to mention the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack.
I started with a card base of Island Indigo cardstock, then added a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. On top of that is a panel of this gorgeous DSP; it looks like a watercolour washed piece of siding, putting me in mind of a seaside cottage.
The two narrow panels are again Island Indigo and Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the jar image using Stazon Black Ink onto a piece of Window Sheet, then used the Everyday Jar Framelits to die cut it out with the Big Shot. I placed the jar where I wanted it on the Whisper White cardstock, inked up the water image with Pool Party ink, then moved the jar & stamped the water directly onto the Whisper White. I stamped the goldfish in Calypso Coral onto Whisper White, and the wire jar handle was stamped in Versamark ink, then I heat embossed it with our new Copper Embossing Powder. Doesn’t it look great – like real wire! Of course, both the fish and wire were die cut using the Everyday Jar Framelits.
Here’s a close up of the Copper Embossing Powder, and this cute little fishy!
I attached the fish using Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the jar and handle using Glue Dots. The stamped panel was layered onto another piece of Island Indigo cardstock, then attached to the card front. To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiments onto Whisper White in Island Indigo ink, and die cut it using the Tags & Labels Framelits. Finally, I added 3 White Perfect Accents, and coloured them using a Sharpie marker – as close to Island Indigo as I could get!
I’m really looking forward to seeing what you do with my sketch – please check out the great designs by the rest of the Watercooler Artists on the Watercooler Wednesday page -then get creating, and link up your own card!
Until next time – happy stamping!
