PPA249 Get Well Wishes



Hi Stampers! 

Here is another card that I created this past weekend using the Pals Paper Arts PPA249 Sketch Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers Free For All F4A264 Challenge (see details here and gallery here).

I decided to pull out a few scraps to create this card and used a previously printed digital image from My Digital Studio (MDS), but of course, the actual stamp image would work as well

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites- they have wonderfully diverse Design Team samples as well as inspiration from their galleries!

To create this card:

Using MDS, position the chicken image onto a blank 8.5 x 11 document and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the image using Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencils (do not dilute) and punch out using the 2 ½” Circle Punch.  Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain to “antique” the paper and stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Memento® Tuxedo Black Ink.

Punch another circle from Basic Black cardstock, split the circle in half and position behind the focal image.

Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain to antique the retired chicken wire and blue swirl Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Trim the chicken wire panel and mount onto the Basic Black card base.

Ink the En Francais background stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and randomly stamp across both DSP panels and mount the blue swirled panel onto Basic Black cardstock.

Add the crocheted lace trim and ¼” Black Gingham ribbon along with the retired ribbon slide from the Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware Collection.

Mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®,  add the sentiment banner and add the Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Countryside, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Gorgeous Grunge, En Francais

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Ranger® Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Stain; Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, retired Beau Chateau DSP

Accessories: Punches- 2 ½” Circle, Banner; Sponge Dauber, retired ¼” Black Gingham Ribbon, retired Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, Pearls, crochet trim from my stash


Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a marvelous Monday!!

What a gorgeous card. I love chickens, roosters, and chicks because my mother collected them. I love the color combinations; everything just works well together. Great card!
