Mosaic Miss You- Two Challenges in One!
I wanted to create a card with this week’s CQC195 ColourQ Challengecolors along with the Splitcoaststampers SC442 Sketch Challenge (if you have not had the chance to do so, check out both sites for terrific examples of how colors and sketches can be so versatile)!!
Stamp the medallion image from Lovely Romance using Basic Gray Classic Ink twice onto Whisper White cardstock. Color using Stampin’ Write markers in Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Orchid Opulence (retired) and “fussy cut” the interior oval out of one of the images. Use the Big Shot™ with the smallest Deco Labels Framelit™ to cut out the other image.
Use the Big Shot™ and the same size Deco Labels Framelit™ as above to cut another frame out of Basic Gray cardstock- cut this frame in half horizontally and trim the edges so only the top portion shows as a frame behind the focal image.
Punch a circle from Basic Gray cardstock using the 1 ¾” Circle Punch and cut this in half- layer behind the focal image on the sides. Add the “fussy cut” oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Lacy & Lovely using Basic Gray Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock- use the 1” Square Punch to create the banner points and layer onto Basic Gray cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Summer Starfruit Designer Series Paper (I used a retired piece from Patio Party)- lightly sand with the Sanding Block.
Mount the Basic Gray cardstock to a Whisper White card base, add the embossed piece of Summer Starfruit DSP and the Paper Tea Lace Doily (cut in half). Add the sentiment to cover the cut edge of the doily, adhere the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and the Pearl to the center to finish off the card.
