Cards in Envy Challenge – Tuxedo!

For this Cards in Envy Challenge, we are all about the black and white cards for our “Tuxedo” challenge. Create any black and white themed card for your entry.  Our challenge runs through Sunday, January, 28th and the design team will be picking their favorites. As a quick reminder, Cards in Envy asks that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card, which is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

My card today features an older Stampin’ Up image used with a square scalloped punch. The black and white papers are from My Minds Eye and cut with a Lawn Fawn scalloped die. My script stamp is from Impression Obsessions, which I stamped in Hero Arts Shadow ink in soft granite. I edged in white pen, wrapped the focal in black and white twine, and finished with 3 black pearls.

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us your “Tuxedo” cards.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #376

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Little Claire, who is offering 9 digital images as a prize to our random winner.  WOW, thanks Little Claire.  You have until Friday, September 4th to enter for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:

For my card I chose Little Claire digital image, “Meadow Girl Silhouette.” I went a little mixed media for my card today by using a print I made from another project which I painted, stenciled, inked, and otherwise just played on.  I then die cut this with My Favorite Things frame die.  For the image, I created stripes of Distress ink in Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, and Mermaid Lagoon. The sentiments are an older Stampin’ Up set applied to flags labels I cut out.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
