We have a great sketch challenge this week at Global Design Project. I thought it would be fun to try something different so I turned the sketch on its side.
I started this card by stamping the card edge with the flower from the So In Love stamp set with Basic Black Archival Ink on Canson XL 140lb. watercolor paper. I also borrowed some leaves from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. I love how well the leaves work so well with the flowers. To get this layered look, I used sticky note masks to cover the areas already stamped. Then I painted the images with several layers of ink refills mixed with water and an AquaPainter. Finally, I stamped the greeting with VersaMark on Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. In order to remain as true as possible with the sketch, I added some linen thread and then attached the sentiment with dimensionals.
We would love to have you play along with us this week. Be sure to check out what the other talented designers/players have created for this fun challenge at the Global Design Project Challenge Blog.
