Hello everyone. Hope that you are having a great Easter. As this goes live on my blog it is Easter Monday so the last day of our long weekend. We have been busy with getting things sorted in my new craft space (see previous post for more details) but I am still working out where everything is going. I suspect that this will be going on for a while to come yet. But at least I do have a space to be crafting in again even if it is a work in progress.
But any who onto this weeks make. I am here with a card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #415
As you can see this is a great sketch to have a lot of fun with. It does have a bunny but you don’t have to use a bunny he is just a place holder for an element.
As I said up top I am in the middle of setting up my craft space and I don’t have access to everything yet and this includes my paper pads. So what is a designer to do … hmmm … well I decided to make my own paper with some digital images from Graciellie Designs. I came across her wonderful designs just before we had to pack up for renovations. But this problem gave me the perfect opportunity to use some of her designs. I used the 2 takeaway cups and one of the included sentiments from the Spring Coffee Cup Mega Digital Stamp Set. Using these 2 different cups I set up a grid pattern just a little wider than my card front; on the same sheet of paper I included one of the flower cups just a little bigger (one of the advantages of digital images) and the sentiment and printed these out on my laser printer.
I coloured in the larger cup with my Polychromos pencils and fussy cut this image to be my element on the card. With my Tim Holtz Guillotine Trimmer I cut the cup panel down to the correct size for my card front mounting this on black lightweight cardstock. Then I found some purple and red cardstocks that was a coordinating shade with the flowers on the cup. I cut some more black cardstock for both the colour layers but used my We R Memory Keepers Multi Cut Trimmer to put a wavy edge onto both pieces. And the sentiment was mounted onto black cardstock as well but first I added Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Stickers to the bottom before mounting it.
Making this card with limited supplies was quite fun but I will be happy when I had full access to my supplies again. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I hope that you will come and play along with us and show us what you make with this design. Before you go off and do that though I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.
Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.
