Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with sketch #161 at From The Heart Stamps which is a little different. As you may have heard, our sweet Faith, owner of From The Heart Stamps, is in the hospital. The team wanted you to know we are still here so we’ve given you a choice of past sketches this week to choose from.
If you didn’t know, all previous sketches are on the blog gallery in the top right hand corner. Some the the sketches have twists and some don’t. Just use a From The Heart image and the sketch and the rest is up to you.
For my card I used Sketch #47 with image “Nerd Boy Balloon”. This is such a fun image! I colored him up with Copic Markers and added glossy accents for his glasses! For my dies, I used the circles by My Favorite Things.
For this Cards in Envy Challenge I used one of the Creative Chemistry techniques, Luminous Mica, using Distress Ink and Distress Mica to create this gorgeous rainbow background. WOW, does this give some dynamic results.
Remember, at Cards in Envy we ask that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card though, we have loosened up our requirements and no longer require a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card as long as it fits in the A2 Envy.
The colors I used with this card are Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Ripe Persimmon, Frayed Burlap, Candy Apple Red, and Mustard Seed. My background stamp is an older Club Scrap wood mounted and my sentiment and candles are from “Wish Big” by Ellen Hutson.
I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us some “Hip To Be Square” cards! The challenge will run through Sunday, August 29th.
