It's Tuesday and that means another challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches blog. This week's challenge is a sketch.
Here is the sketch posted:
I had a lot of fun with this week's challenge. The square is perfect for a nice size image and the rectangle underneath works great for a sentiment.
I did quite a bit of masking since all the images are separate (stump, hedgie, flowers). The hedgie and the stump are shaded using a MISTI, but any stamping platform will work (and I should be getting my Stampin' Up! Stamparatus any day now - yay!) I describe the technique in detail in this post.
I started by stamping two (remember my motto - "I always make two in case I mess up") and boy am I glad I did! I ended up forgetting to put the mask on the hedgehog when I stamped the stump on one of them. Totally blew it. But since I had the other one I didn't have to start over.
I die cut three green squares and stacked them under the image square to lift it off the card. Instead of gluing die cut letters to the front, I cut them out of the front and let the negative show the pink card base underneath.
hope you enjoyed this card today. I have a list of some of the supplies with links
