Happiness Shared- A Sketch and Color Challenge
I just love the PPA111 sketch this week at Pals Paper Arts and decided to combine it with the CQC102ColourQ Challenge. The designers and submissions at both site are fabulous- again, if you have the time, check them out and leave them some stamping “love”!
Once I decided on the design, this was a quick, easy card and can you believe it, I did not use an embossing folder (although I still had to use my Big Shot™- I cannot make a card without it now :-))?
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Bigz™ Top Note Die to cut a piece of Whisper White and Basic Gray cardstock. Cut both shapes in half and trim the edge off the Whisper White piece and sand the rough edges with the Sanding Block.
Ink the blossom stamp from Happiness Shared with Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp the image onto the Top Note shape. Color with Stampin’ Write Markers in Certainly Celery and Poppy Parade. Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Basic Gray marker to spritz the image.
Ink the Hello, Doily background stamp with Tempting Turquoise and stamp onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock. Layer with the Top Note focal image, adhere the 5/8” satin ribbon bow and mount onto Whisper White and again onto Basic Gray.
Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Gray, punch out with the Word Window Punch and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray punched with the Modern Label Punch.
Add the Pearls and spritz again with the Color Spritzer Tool and Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker to finish off the card.
