Happy Saturday friends! Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by A Random Fan who is generously offering 3 digis of winners choice. I hope you pop over to their Etsy page as these images are so cute! Get your card in by Friday, February 27th for a chance to win.
Here’s the sketch:
Love this sketch by Deb! The offset paper is such a cool trend these days. For my card I used A Random Fan’s “Swing Into Love” image which I colored with copics. The paper is from Doodlebug called “take note”. The branch with leaves as well as the offset paper are dies from My Favorite Things. The red heart is chipboard and spray painted with Liquitex professional spray in cadmium red medium hue. If you haven’t used these spray paints give them a whirl. They are so vibrant and really cover multiple surfaces in one spray. The sentiment is Simon Says Stamp “Sketch Banner Sayings”.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
I’ve been working on my week 4 project and decided to do a canvas. I was partially inspired by May Flaum and by instructor Jenn Mason who taught a great out of the box class working on black gesso. I was fairly pleased with how this came out as it was my very first canvas. One of the things I did that I wouldn’t do again is cover the focal embellishment with Matte Medium. You can see that it didn’t dry clear, which shocked me so there are little white clumps that look funny in closeup. I also had some odd reaction with the spray paints – the orange “broke”. Kind of like oil and water. Not sure what happened.
The products used were: Liqutex Spray Paints, Liquitex fluid ink in Deep Purple & Naphthol Crimson, FW Pearlescent by Daler Rowney in Genesis Green, Molotow Markers in White, Black and Grey, Dina Wakely Paint in Blackberry Violet, Stencils from Heidi Swapp (hearts) and Club Scrap (sentiment), rub-ons, Tim Holtz grunge hearts, Rose from I am Roses, wire and metal from stash.
Happy New Year! It’s the first Saturday of 2015 and time for a Send a Smile 4 Kids Card Challenge! We have continued our tradition of having great sponsors who have generously offered prizes to our randomly chosen winners. They are:
1) DRS Designs: Offering a prize of $10.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner
2) Doodle Pantry: Offering a prize of $10.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner
3) Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet: Offering a prize of $6.00 Gift Certificate to Random Winner
Now, how about some inspiration!
My first card uses DRS Designs “Allie & Callie“. I colored them with Copic Markers and used Glitz’s “Felicity” 6 x 6 paper pack. Sentiment is Paper Smooches as is the “love” die.
My second card uses a digital image from Doodle Pantry called, “Heart Candy Ants”. I brought the image into Photoshop Elements and inserted the sentiment into the heart. This image is full of great sentiments for Love and Valentines cards and is perfect for this challenge. I used Copic Markers and Lily Bee’s “Head Over Heels” 6 x 6 collection then finished it off with some pearls and chipboard arrows painted with white.
The last card today uses Stitchy Bear Digital Designs “BBKakes, Balloon Boy I” which I colored with Copic’s and used recollections ticket embellishments and a die cut heart spray painted with some cool new Liquitex spray paints from Blick Arts. So cool and great coverage. Perfect for all types of paper crafting projects.
