With the rain about today, I decided that I would sit & attempt a couple of challenges. This one is from Stamp-a-Holics which I have done before. It looked too easy not to attempt & upon seeing the sketch, though immediately of “Circle Circus”. I love this set & can’t seem to get enough of it. I’ve also used colours that are not me, but they just sort of jumped into my hands.
Now one of the conditions for this Sketch Challenge is – A card must be completed in 15 minutes or less. Yep, I had 68 seconds left. Boy, does the time fly when you are having fun.
Base Card – Whisper White – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – Score & Fold in half
Layer 1 – Old Olive – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm – Cut from bottom about 1″. This allows you to attach the Basic Black Scalloped Edge
Layer 2 – Basic Gray – 4 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ or 11.5cm x 4cm
I punch an edge along a scrap piece of Basic Black Cardstock & layered it along the bottom half of Old Olive Cardstock. I adhered the other half of Old Olive across the top of the Basic Black.
I punched 3 Whisper White squares & stamped them randomly using different images & Olid Olive, Basic Gray & Basic Black Inks. These were adhered to the Basic Gray Cardstock, ensuring that they were placed evenly.This was then adhered to the Olive Olive Cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment directly onto Old Olive Cardstock using Basic Black Marker. I then drew a couple of scriggley lines under the sentiment using my Basic Black Marker.
I again stamped 2 images onto Whisper White Cardstock, one in Old Olive Ink & the other using Basic Gray Ink. I punched these images using 2 punches & adhered to the card.
The whole card was then adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White. I drew white dots in the middle of the scalloped edge to lift it a little using my Gel Pen.
