I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! I had a chance to finish a card this evening using Verve Stamps, Scripture Medley 3 for the Viva La Verve October 2017 Sketch Challenge.
I also incorporated some Stampin' Up! retired paper, ribbon from my stash, sequins and a few die cuts along with the Color Throwdown #466 Challenge for the color palette and the Tic-Tac-Toe #021 Challenge (middle row across- Purple – Free- Sequins) for additional inspiration.
If you have not had a chance to check out the challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous galleries and ideas from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Scripture Medley 3 verse sentiment with Versafine® Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the powder has cooled, die cut the image with a stitched square die, mount onto espresso cardstock (trimming close to the edge) and use a stencil brush with a flourish stencil to apply antique linen distress ink.
2). Layer the rust gingham designer paper onto espresso cardstock, trim and mount onto olive cardstock. Add the plum ribbon layer (per the vertical strip in the sketch) and mount the entire panel onto the espresso card front. Adhere the card front onto the white card base.
3). Cut a piece of olive patterned paper to fit the stitched espresso rectangle die cut, mount the layered sentiment onto the panel and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.
4). Die cut the leaf image from plum and rust cardstock, layer together and add to the card front with dimensional foam.
5). Finish off the card with a few purple sequins and the purple bow.
