For those of you who aren’t in the Online Card Classes new Clean & Simple 4, you are really missing out. Today’s class was really cool and here is my card using the technique taught by Karolyn Loncon called Velveteen Stamping – it’s really cool. The stamp set is from Paper Smooches with accents and sentiments from Simon Says Stamp. Background is “friends” from Hero Arts. Here’s my card:
Happy Wednesday! It’s time for a sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built. You can use the sketch as is or turn it on its head. Either way, let’s have some fun. As incentive, the lucky random winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store. Even better, if you use Repeat Impressions products, there is an extra entry coming your way. WooHoo!!
Let’s get started with the sketch:
As you can see, I rotated the sketch as well as the oval element. The stamp featured is Repeat Impression’s Rebecca 708-K colored with copic markers. The background is called “pointillism”, but simply put, its a lot of dots around an image. Some people will concentrate the dots toward the image and then fade them out, which also looks good. The dies on the card are all from My Favorite Things. I finished off with a few enamel dots and called it a sketch!
I sure hope we see you at The House that Stamps Built this week!
