Bravo! Way to Go- A "Throwdown" and Sketch Challenge :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

Ok- this is the last card that I will be sharing that I created this past weekend…I decided to try a brand new challenge for me- TGIFC Throwdown Challenge #2 for July along with the IN{K}SPIRE_Me #206 Sketch Challenge ( flipped the sketch over).

The TGIFC "Throwdown" Challenge is a monthly challenge where you can only use at least four of six items that they list as the “throwdown” along with a few other “pantry” items- trust me, this was a tough one- lol!!

I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites and check out all of the inspiration from their Design Teams as well as their galleries!

To create this card:

Using Hello Honey and Pool Party re-inkers, place a few ink drops on your acrylic blocks and spritz with water.

Lay a piece of Whisper White cardstock face down into the ink, swirl and lift (do not get the paper too wet or it will “pill”).

Add a bit more interest using an AquaPainter™ and dripping plain water over the dried ink- it will spread a bit and create larger circles.

Add a bit of black splatters using the AquaPainter™ with Momento™  Tuxedo Black Ink (drop  a spot of the refill, pick it up with the AquaPainter™ and tap the brush end top to create the splatter or allow to just drop onto the paper).

Stamp the sentiment from Bravo! using Momento™  Tuxedo Black Ink (I probably should have used Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink) onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.   

Add another Whisper White panel mounted onto Basic Black cardstock on an angle behind the sentiment.

Place the sentiment face down onto the acrylic blocks with the remaining Hello Honey and Pool Party re-inker and swirl the paper a bit.
Also swirl a small piece of Whisper White cardstock into the Hello Honey and Pool Party ink- set aside to dry.

Cut the background panel into three strips and mount onto Basic Black cardstock. Trim the panel again and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the scrap strips of Basic Black cardstock and mount the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Hand cut the small squares of Whisper White cardstock and hand cut the tiny squares of Hello Honey and Pool Party paper (created in the step above) to create the two diamond shaped accents-  add to the card front to finish off the card.

I love being challenged and think that the limited “Throwdown” challenge is a great idea, but I feel that this card is missing something (I may end up adding a few Rhinestones before I send this one in the mail)....
