Hello friends! I hope that you are all staying safe and healthy! I have a new Sketch Challenge to share with you today from My Favorite Things! If you have the extra time, I challenge you to come and play along!
Here’s a look at this week’s sketch layout. It’s a fun one and the possibilities are endless!
To start my card, I first created an ocean background with some Distress Inks and the Ray of Light Stencil. I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and masked the outer edges with some purple tape. I then used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Inks along with the stencil to create my scene. Once I was finished ink blending, I then used a #4 paintbrush to splatter some clean water onto my piece before blotting it dry with a paper towel.
Next, I cut a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and diecut my arched-style window by first die cutting a square with the Stitched Square STAX Die-namics. I then ran this piece back through my diecutting machine using one of the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics to create the arch portion.
Next, I stamped my images from both the Birdie Brown Mermazing and Gill Friends Stamp Sets onto another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then used the window piece that I had diecut as a reference to where I wanted to place everything inside of the window. I heat embossed my sentiment and an ocean plant with some Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.
Lastly, I added a piece of clear acetate behind my window and used some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape on my base to create some space for my shaker embellishments.
