Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!
I found a really fun card sketch over at The Paper Players
http://www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/2014/09/paper-players-challenge-215-sketch-from.html today. Here it is.
Inchies are usually hard for me but this sketch was very fun to work with. It reminded me of a mosaic scene. This is what I came up with.
I really am having fun with this new/old Rubbing Alcohol Marker technique that makes beautiful Marbling backgrounds. This time I put some Gold Re-inker into the technique. The look is really very beautiful with the gold addition to the marbling. I used Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight and a few scribbles of Real Red Markers in my color combination. I stamped the large blossom in Basic Black Ink then cut my squares in 1 1/4 ". They are matted on a Calypso Coral background piece. The card base is Blackberry Bliss I really think it made the focal image pop and I ran it through with the Woodgrain Impression Folder. I added a Tangerine Tango Bakers Twine bow and a little Calypso Coral Button and a Crumb Cake banner to the bottom of the card front. The sentiment is from the Something to Say stamp set.
Here is the link for the video tutorial from Split Coast Stampers.
Here is a look at the inside of the card.
That's all for me today. I hope you were inspired enough to give this sketch a try. I know the crew over at The Paper Players would love to see what you come up with.
