HYCCT1503 Strength of a Warrior
This card was created for Splitcoaststampers' HYCCT1503 Kathy’s “I Am A Warrior”Challenge along with the WT535 “Go West!” Challenge, CAS-ual Chic CCC04 “Tic, Tac Toe” Challenge (Stitching, Coloring and Distressing), Friday Mashup! FM228 “It’s ASilhouette” Challenge and FUSION “Falling Leaves” Inspiration and Sketch Challenge (I was inspired by the colors and used the sketch)
I hope you have a chance to check out the challenge sites- so much inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Create a mask for the moon using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and sponge Delightful Dijon, Tangerine Tango and Blackberry Bliss onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Ink the Sweet ‘n Sassy Landscape Silhouettes stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto the sponged background.
Add additional foreground with the Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen marker, trim the panel and stitch onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (layered onto Early Espresso cardstock).
Distress the edges of the retired Outlaw DSP and emboss the lower panel using a star embossing folder.
Stitch all of the layers onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool.
Ink the paisley stamp from the retired Wanted set using Blackberry Bliss cardstock and stamp over the central stitched panel.
Lightly sand the stars and use a Sponge Dauber to lightly add Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink over the background.
Mount the entire background onto the Very Vanilla card base.
Stamp the Four Feathers stamps using Hello Honey Classic Ink and sponge Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink over the images. Carefully fussy-cut the feathers and fringe the edges.
Mount the focal image to the card front along with the feathers using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker to selectively ink the sentiments from the retired script stamp in Strength & Hope and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock, punch out with the retired Jewelry Tag Punch, sponge with a bit of Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and mount onto the card front.
Add the Antique Brad to finish off the card.
