Hi folks! Lots going on this week as the Retired list comes out on Tuesday and I still have openings available for my class this weekend…
For today’s card I went back to one of my oldest (and still current as of right now!) stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree. I created this for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge PCCCS140:
And here’s the card I came up with:
I used gold ink for the “Hardwood” woodgrain and my circle framelits to cut the circles. I actually glued the black circle right back onto the Old Olive then popped up the hardwood portion on dimensionals.
For the coloring, I used my acrylic block and scribbled some markers on it… I think the Melon Mambo was a bit too overpowering, as you can barely see the Pumpkin Pie or Daffodil Delight. After coloring on the block, I spritzed it with water and placed it on my Whisper White card stock. After it was dry, I stamped the trees in Black.
The “FOR YOU” came from the Itty Bitty Banners, I used a marker to color each word, and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to place them. I punched them out with the banner punch. I used the Gold Foil paper here for one of them.
A few highlights on the trees with the gold marker, white gel pen, and some gold buttons round out the card. No pun intended..
I hope you like the pop of color. I’ll have to try more of this technique with bigger pieces. I like the way it turned out, just want to try it with more colors. 🙂
Thanks for looking!
