Just Add Ink #375 - Sketch

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope your Friday is treating you well. It's challenge time over at Just Add Ink and Kim has challenged us with a sketch.  I loved the simplicity of this sketch,  I decided to rotate the orientation, to create two tent fold cards.

The first card has a glossy white card front. Using a stencil from the Party Pattern Decorative Masks, I sponged Black Momento Ink, lighting the saturation gradually towards the centre. Then I removed the mask and lightly sponged Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight inks.

The card front was adhered to a layer of black card before adhering to the Flirty Flamingo card base. A vellum circle was cut using the Stitched Shapes and glued to the card front with a dab of Tombow.

The sentiment from Birthday Delivery was white heat embossed on black card and a layer of silver glimmer card was attached to the bottom.  The flower and leaves were die cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and adhered to the vellum circle.

The inside of the flower is also glossy card with Flirty Flamingo & Melon Mambo inks applied with an aqua painter.
The second card uses the large flower and a leaf from the Falling Flowers stamp set. I stamped the images in Archival Black onto Shimmery White card and water coloured with Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight. The centre image was stamped first and then masked and repeated to create the panel in the sketch.

I used the Circle Stitched Shapes to cut the two circles and raised with dimensionals for the outside ring and foam strip for the inside ring. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, was white heat embossed on black card and punched using the window word punch (now retired)

As always, the amazing Design Team have created and shared some stunning projects using this weeks challenge sketch, be sure to check them out here. Why not join us and play along.

Until next time, stay awesome
