SC678 Hey Chick
It’s time for the weekly sketch at Splitcoaststampers! Cathy designed our SC678 sketch this week and I decided to create another Clean and Layered card using the retired stamp set, Hey, Chick along with a bit of splatter with Timeless Textures (both Stampin' Up!).
I am also linking this card to the Simon Says Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge as well as a few other Splitcoaststampers challenges- F4A403 “Birthdays Are The Best” and Stamp To Save S2S18A (use a challenge that you were unable to participate in 2017 and I chose S2S17C (Fun/Funny).
If you have not had a chance to visit the Splitcoaststampers’ SC678 Sketch gallery or other challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Die cut three circles from Whisper White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits™. Die cut three circles from Basic Black cardstock using the retired Circle Framelits™.
2). Ink and stamp the chicken images from Hey, Chick using archival black ink, allow the ink to dry before coloring with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils- Real Red, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie. Use an AquaPainter™ to blend the pencil and add a bit of shimmer with a clear glitter pen. Once the watercolor has dried, add white accents to the crazy chicken’s hair with an extra fine white paint pen.
3). Trim a piece of retired Sycamore Street Designer Paper for the upper and lower panel of the sketch. Mount the panels on a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
4). Add a piece of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon over the edges of the DSP, wrap the ends behind the panel. Mount the entire panel onto the white card base.
5). Adhere the chicken die cut images using dimensional foam for the center image.
6). De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiments from Hey, Chick using Versamark™ ink, apply White Embossing Powder and heat set with a Heat Tool.
7). Trim the sentiments and create the flag banners by hand. Mount the sentiments to the card front with dimensional foam. Add a few sequins to finish off the card.
