I'm popping in today to share a project that was inspired by this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge! I was completely enthralled with this week's sketch because the elements offered so many opportunities to "interpret!" Which I think you all know I love to do! Here's this week's sketch:
And here's how I "interpreted" this week's sketch:
I saw this sketch as an opportunity to pull out one of the stamps from last month's mid-month red rubber release! I stamped one of the Magnolia Blossoms onto some watercolor paper using some Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I "faux" water colored the image with my new Karin Pro Markers (my new fave coloring medium) and a water brush, and then fussy cut the image out with my detail scissors. I used the Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics to die cut an aperture from some masking paper. Then I adhered the mask to the card base and ink blended some Summer Splash and Tickled Pink Dye Inks into the aperture. Before I removed the mask, I inserted the same Inside & Out Stitched Circle die into the masked aperture, using the edges of the mask to wiggle the die into position, and then I ran it through my die cut machine using an embossing mat. That embossed the stitching into the card base, which I think adds great detail and interest! Then I removed the mask and adhered the water colored focal image to the ink blended circle using foam squares. I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Hummingbirds Stamp Set onto some Sno Cone card stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed the sentiment strip with my trimmer, and adhered it to the card base with foam squares. I added my fave Sparkling Clear Sequins as a last detail! I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.
