SC618 You Are Absolutely Fabulous
I hope all of you are having a great week so far! It’s time for the new Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) SC618 Sketch Challenge and I decided to incorporate the SCS WT608 “All About Critters” Challenge and the Just Us Girls #368 "Encouragement" Word Week Challenge into the design.
If you have not already visited the above challenge sites, I hope you will have a chance to do so- fabulous inspiration from my DT Sisters at the SCS Sketch Gallery as well as the other challenge sites!
To create this card:
Ink the Inkadinkado® Horses clear stamp image with Basic Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with My Favorite Things (MFT) Stitched Square STAX Dies to cut out the image and color with Derwent® Watercolor Pencils and an AquaPainter™.
Mount the die cut panel onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Trim and mount a piece of retired Stampin’ Up! (SU!) Outlaw Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, add the horizontal elements of the sketch (I used scrap pieces of Outlaw DSP mounted onto the MFT Horizontal Stitched Strip Die cut from Early Espresso cardstock).
Mount another piece of the retired Outlaw DSP onto a rectangle stitched die cut from Early Espresso cardstock (I used the MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX Dies and split the layered panel in half to make it large enough for the layer on the sketch.
Adhere the rectangle layered die cut onto the card front panel, add the knotted polished hemp twine and mount the entire background panel onto the card base.
Stamp the sentiment from the retired SU! Absolutely Fabulous stamp set with Basic Black Archival Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, create the banner points with the retired Hexagon Punch and mount onto Early Espresso cardstock (trimming and using the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points as well).
Adhere the sentiment to the stamped focal image panel, add dimensional foam to the back and mount onto the card front.
Add the photo corners to the focal image (FYI- I created the photo corners from scrap pieces of Early Espresso cardstock that had been die cut with the MFT Stitched Square and Rectangle STAX Dies that were in my stash and just hand cut to create the corners :-)).
To finish off the card, I added a bit of shimmer with a clear glitter pen to the background panel behind the horse image and a few pearls to the corners.
This card will be sent to a special young lady in our lives- she is absolutely fabulous and, of course, loves horses!
