SC659 Do Something Creative Every Day
It’s time for the new sketch at Splitcoaststampers and this is such a creative sketch by Allison, isn’t it? I love how our Sketch DT interpreted the sketch and we cannot wait to see what you will create!
I decided to pull out the retired Retro Fresh designer paper and pair it with the Crafting Forever stamp set (new in the 2017-2018 Idea Book & Catalog) as well as the Timeless Textures stamp set.
I am also linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #296-#297 “Anything Goes”Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the Word Art Wednesday challenge site yet, or come visit our sketch challenge gallery, I hope you will find the time to do so- as always, gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using archival black ink, stamp the Crafting Forever paintbrush image along with the sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Watercolor the paintbrush image with an AquaPainter™ and Stampin’ Write Markers (Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango) as well as a Basic Black SU! Watercolor Pencil (for the bristles, metallic parts of the brushes and shadows).
2). Fussy-cut the paintbrush image and set aside. Die cut the sentiment with the Circle Framelits™, mount onto a stitched circle die cut from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Use the AquaPainter™ with diluted ink from the markers above to add a bit of color.
3). Trim a piece of Retro Fresh designer paper to 4” x 5 ¼”, mount onto a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
4). Create the diagonal strips per the sketch from the Retro Fresh DSP and Pool Party cardstock, mount onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and trim close to the edge. Layer onto the background panel and trim off the edges.
5). Die cut a large stitched circle from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and a smaller circle to fit within the stitched circle from Retro Fresh DSP. Layer the two together and mount onto the background panel.
6). Mount the entire background panel onto Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock and add the paint brush image and sentiment with dimensional foam.
7). Ink the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures with the Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write Marker and add a few splatters.
8). Add shimmer to the sentiment and brushes with Clear Wink of Stella™ to finish off the card.
