Sketch Challege with Kim.Kreates!
Hi crafty friends! Today I am sharing something really fun! My friend, Kim (@kim.kreates) and I decided to challenge each other to create something and then share the results. This was so much fun! We decided to use a sketch to create our first card. This was a bit of a challenge for me, but I am pleased with the results!
This is the sketch that we both really liked. It is a Mojo Monday sketch that Kim found on Pinterest. I decided that I also wanted to use a stamp set that I have not used yet. I have tons (I cannot create as fast as I buy LOL!). So for this card I chose to use the Lawn Fawn Pumpkin Spice stamp and die set.
I decided (well rather my daughter decided LOL- I couldn't!) to go with green. I gave her the choice of pink or green and green it was. I also decided that I wanted to use ink, rather than paper, for the first layer. I masked off the dimensions for the first layer with some sticky tape and then got to work inking in Rustic Wilderness distress oxide ink. Then I added some water droplets to break it up a bit. I then doodled squiggly lines along the borders.
For the second layer, I also decided to make my own paper. I took some white cardstock and a stencil from (Be You Dot stencil from Carta Bella) and used Citron, cracked pistachio, and rustic wilderness distress oxide inks and blended them together. I then went over this with some clear texture paste from Ranger and let it dry, and then cut it to the proper dimension.
I cut the 2" scalloped circle with a really old paper punch that I have. I inked it with Citron and then black soot around the edges. I also cut a little banner from Kraft cardstock and the little piece from some scraps of green gingham cardstock.
Once this was done, I stamped the sentiment and the image and got to work coloring this cute little latte! I used Copic markers in R81, 83, 85, and 27 for the cup, and for the latte, I used E31, 33, 34, and 37. I added some Glossy Accents and let it dry and then die cut it. I adhered everything to the page and voila!
I really had a lot of fun with this challenge that we did, and I hope that we continue to do this because it was so much fun! I was also pretty happy that I used some scraps and a stamp and die set that I had not used before.
