Birthday Wishes For LeAnne- A Color, Technique and Sketch Challenge :-)
I wanted to create another card using one of my favorite stamp sets, An Open Heart and decided to incorporate the C489 Splitcoaststampers' Color Challenge (Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Calypso Coral) along with the FM170 Friday Mashup! DelftTile Background and Sketch (modified the sketch a bit) and also a birthday cardfor the #119 blog hop at Merry Monday for LeAnne (Happy Birthday LeAnne!!).
If you have not had a chance to do, I hope that you will take a moment to visit all of the challenge sites- so many wonderful Design Teams samples and entries!
To create this card:
Use the Simply Scoring Tool™ to score lines on a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 1” increments to create the tile background.
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink stamp the stem image onto Whisper White cardstock, mask and repeatedly stamp the image again, mask and stamp once more.
Color the floral stem image using the Stampin’ Write markers- Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for the leaves and Calypso Coral for the berries and blossoms.
Use the medium Calyso Coral Blendabilities™ marker to add shadows on the blossoms and the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows to the image.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake Classic Ink to sponge over the entire image and allow the “grout” lines to show :-) Add additional shadows with Soft Suede Classic Ink and use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add more distressing.
Trim the panel and adhere to a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim again and add to the Calypso Coral cardstock layer.
Add the embossed lace panel- I had this piece in my scraps :-) It had been previously cut with the Big Shot™ along with the Large Scallop Edgelit™ and embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (that had been inked with Crumb Cake Classic Ink prior to embossing the Whisper White cardstock).
Sponge additional Crumb Cake Classic Ink onto the Calypso Coral cardstock at the bottom of the card and use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.
Add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon bow (from my stash) to cover the seam of the lace embossed piece.
I also had a pre-printed sentiment in my stash (using My Digital Studio onto Whisper White cardstock)- sponge with Crumb Cake Classic Ink , punch out using the Large Scallop Punch and layered onto a Pool Party cardstock oval punched with the Large Oval Punch as well.
Layer the panel onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock , trim and mount onto a Whisper White card base. Sponge Crumb Cake Classic Ink to “antique” the edges of the card and age the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the Carolina Wren image onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and color using the Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write markers and carefully cut out by hand.
Cut a 2” Circle from Whisper White cardstock and create a horizon line using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker. Mask the line and repeatedly stamp the leaf image from World of Dreams using Pool Party Classic Ink, ink the same image using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and stamp a few leaves with the Bermuda Bay.
Color the “ground” area with the Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write marker and Light Crumb Cake Blendabilities™ marker.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake Classic Ink to distress the paper and add the spritzing using the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker along with the Color Spritzer Tool.
Punch out a 2” Circle from Pool Party and Calypso Coral cardstock, split the circles in half horizontally and adhere behind the stamped landscape image.
Add the fussy cut wren to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere to the layered circle.
