6/28/2015 Update: This card was selected as a Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers!
Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #214 is approaching so I spent some time today thinking about the sketch. Here is my submission:
A die was used to embellish the yellow panel. Dotted DSP was also die cut
and adhered to provide a round frame for the focal images. A strip of blue was added to the right edge. The yellow panel was backed with craft foam for depth and adhered to the gray card base. Coordinating DSP with birds in flight was adhered to a blue panel. A tiny sentiment, Smile, was added in gray ink then the panel was adhered to the card base with foam at the left edge to lift it to the same height as the yellow panel.
The birds and large flower were stamped with gray ink, colored with Spectrum
Noir alcohol markers, fussy cut and edges sponged. They were backed with craft foam to give them dimension then adhered to the card. The small flowers were punched from blue and yellow cardstock, edges sponged, adhered to the card and decorated with pearls.
The inside of the card was lined in yellow cardstock and decorated with flowers punched from dotted DSP and blue cardstock. Visit HSSSC214 for creative card ideas.
