Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image. The rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to add heat embossing.
For my card, I used only the sketch this week. I colored the November Stamp of the Month called, “Deck The Halls Birdbrain” with Copic Markers and added a faux stitched frame. The paper is My Minds Eye “Winter Wonderland” and the sentiment is included in the “Deck The Halls Birdbrain” image.
Come on over and join us this week for our Sketch Challenge at From The Heart Stamps Blog.
Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image and the sketch. The rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to add some stitching. It can be real, faux, or die cut stitches.I used both the sketch and the twist this week. To create the stitching, I used My Favorite Things and Simon Says Stamp “stitched” dies. My image is an all time favorite of mine called, “Happy Harvest.” It’s such a spectacular fall image to have in your stash.
The paper used is “A Perfect Autumn from Carta Bella.” The leaves are stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is from “Pumpkin Pigwit.” Finally, the rectangle dies are Spellbinders.
Don’t you just love Mo Manning’s Digital images? I sure do. So whimsical and darling. I colored this digi with Copic Markers and used Doodle Bug paper. The sketch is from The Fusion Challenge. Background was created with the Simon Says Stamp Wave Stencil and the sea horse and foliage is from Tim Holtz Dies. The sea horse and starfish are cut out with “sand” paper from Club Scrap. The sentiment is WPlus 9 “Hand Lettered Hello” heat embossed on a My Favorite Things flag label die.
