When I Need A Friend- Another Color and Sketch Challenge :-)



Hi Again Stampers! 

I had a great time creating a few cards this weekend and this card was created using the Around the World AW21 Color Challenge along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA212 Sketch Challenge. 

If you have not linked up to the challenge sites yet, I urge you to do so- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Stamp the blossom from Choose Happiness using Basic Gray Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  

Use a Sponge Dauber with Strawberry Slush Classic Ink and “pounce” the ink onto the images, “fussy-cut” the blossoms and sponge a bit of Basic Gray around the outside edges.  Add a few highlights using the Chalk Marker to the flower centers.

Ink the Dictionary background stamp using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pool Party cardstock and layer onto the background panel (adhering ½ of a White Tea Lace Paper Doily to the lower edge and a strip of Strawberry Slush cardstock to the upper edge).

Trim the background panel and mount onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock and trim once more mounting onto the Basic Gray card base.

Add the flowers using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the banner points using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add Pearls to finish off the card.
