I wanted to use a particular stamp set this morning, so I went searching for a sketch challenge & come across this one from Diva Coffee Break & thought “Why not”. This is what I come up.
Base Card – Peach Parfait Cardstock – Cut, score & fold Layer 1 – Not Quiet Navy Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm Layer 2 – Pear Pizzazz Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 14cm x 6.5cm Layer 3 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 2 1/8″ or 5.5cm
Attach Layer 1 to card base
Using my Border Punch, I punched both sides of Pear Pizzazz & attached to card base. Armed with my Bigshot, Oval Dies & Very Vanilla Cardstock, I cut out an oval and randomly rubbed Shimmer Paint over it.
Once the Shimmer Paint was about dried, I stamped a flower image onto the oval using Not Quiet Navy Ink. I ran my finger around the edges of the oval to give it a bit more of a look. By doing this I was able to pick up some of the Not Quiet Navy ink which had not completely dried. Using Shimmer Paint, I was able to do this as it keeps your inks wet a little longer. I adhered this to the top of the DSP. I adhered ribbon and tied a bow tie.
I again randomly applied Shimmer Paint to a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, allowed to dry & then stamped a sentiment using Not Quiet Navy. I punched the sentiment using my Large Oval. I punched a piece of Not Quiet Navy Cardstock with the Scallop Oval & adhered it to the Very Vanilla Cardstock. This was then adhered to the bottom of the DSP.
I adhered the DSP to the Pear Pizzazz.
