Today I wanted to try my hand at my very first Card Sketch. My choice was Challenge #7 from Always Playing with Paper. Click on the link and check out all the other beautiful cards created by talented cardmakers!
In creating this card challenge, I have used the “Elements of Style” and “Well Scripted” stamps sets, metallic eyelets and the satin ribbon in Rich Razzleberry from Stampin’ Up. I have used an AquaPen to handpaint the stamped image (I have used Staz On ink in Jet Black to minimize the ink bleeding). It doesn’t really show in the photo, but I have added shimmer paints to the stamped image, using Pearl Ex Watercolor CD Series. The oval sentiment was stamped in Vivid Ink in Rich Cocoa, then I have added two self-adhesive jewels and some Clear Stardust glitter to the border of the oval. I have added a Whisper White insert inside the card, after rounding off the corners and decorating it with the Flourish from the “Elements of Style” set. Same flourish is decorating the white envelope that accompanied the card.
It was an interesting challenge for me (I don’t do well with sketches/challenges…. lol), but I actually like how it turned out 🙂
Thank you for stopping by; I hope you’ll let me know what you think 🙂
