Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #103

Written by: iwona    20 Comments

Hello! I have to start by apologizing for the late post. It’s been a classic “one of those”… Considering that I’m already running overtime writing this, how about I get straight to the merit! I hope you like my sketch, it’s based around what’s made to be an ombre / gradient background and I’d really love to see your takes on this!  Remember that it’s not only inks / cardstock & dies that can help you achieve that effect, if you love paper like I do then you probably have an ombre sheet of paper tucked somewhere too 🙂 That would be my next choice!
(of course, feel free to do whatever else you wish with that panel… it’s only a suggestion)

Today I have a super talented and the sweetest friend helping me with a sample – Stacey from Stacey’s Stamping Stage! Pop in her blog to see what she cooked up!
Here’s what I did… an ultimate one layer! YAY! I masked the rectangle and sponged it with distress inks, flicked some water over it and stamped the branch (Memory Box) and sentiment (Technique Tuesday). I also added a couple of tiny pearls to the branches.

I was inspired by some additional challenges. I took a pretty literal inspiration in Therese’s card in the Muse Challenge #30. Then I stumbled upon the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge with the perfectly fitting colours. Funny stuff, I did want to do the inked background from the beginning, without looking for additional inspiration, but these two just made working on this card extra awesome 🙂


If you would like to play along:

– You’re kindly asked to save the sketch image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
– Share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget below, so that I can come and check it out!
– A new sketch is posted every other Saturday night (8pm Australian EST, 6am American EST, and the link widget is open for two weeks. However, you’re welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section and I’ll pop in to see it.
– I’ll be inviting one person who uses my sketch, to join me for the next one! I’ll be also highlighting the entries that caught my eye, on my Facebook page.
– Every now and then, I will also invite an inky friend to join me as well, for an extra dose of inspiration.
