Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #121

Written by: iwona    1 Comment

Hello, hello! I made it a tradition it seems, that my Saturday sketches arrive late… got to keep going with what I’ve got! I hope you don’t mind much; I find that I don’t have enough time to build up these challenges as much as I initially wanted (at least not at he moment) but I do love it when you play along and enjoy the sketches. How about this one?

And here’s my card inspired by the sketch. Traditionally, I plastered a mix of stamps all over it (all from Papertrey Ink: Ruby Rose, Boutique Borders: Birthday, Big & Bold Wishes and Super Stripes) and used PTI inks to infuse the card with plenty of colours. There’s a subtle transition from orange to melon on the big sentiment, I inked it with both Orange Zest & Berry Sorbet.

The frame was embossed with Scalloped Squares LG Nestabilities die. I created the striped background on the Aqua Mist card base with Super Stripes and Hawaiian Shores ink, layered a white panel with Harvest Gold CS, stamped the sentiment and flourish from Boutique Borders: Birthday and Big & Bold Wishes in the embossed frame. The blooms from Ruby Rose were stamped in Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Berry Sorbet and Simply Chartreuse and cut out. I don’t have the dies :/


If you would like to play along:
