I was contacted by “The Beate” and asked if I would be a team member for her weekend sketch challenges. OMW right? Come on! After happy dancing around the house and my son just laughing at me, I replied with a big YES. I rushed to the phone to call my husband who just was like, “okay!!??!”…they sometimes just don’t get it:) Well, let’s just say the family got a nice home-cooked meal with a very pleasant attitude that evening.
I made this card for Beate’s WSC#24.
My problem is this: is it just me or do you experience the “River Rock Chameleon” syndrome as well? I swear this cardstock changes its color when held up against different colors of CS. It’s hard to work with. I used it with this color combo, and when I was completed and stood back to look at it, it looked like Certainly Celery??? Oh well…I think it worked though.
The card base is 4-1/2″ x 10″ folded in half. Cut 1-1/8″ off one side. Added strip of Groovy Guava ribbon from Sherbert Ribbon Originals and a strip of So Saffron CS. Stamped “So Much” on the inside exposed edge of the card.
Layered on top of card base is: River Rock CS 4-1/8″ x 4-1/4″ with edges sponged with River Rock ink and stamped the sketched circular image, and stamped “thanks” with Close to Cocoa ink; Confetti White CS 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ with corners rounded, paper-piercing border, a stamped sketched circular image to center of piece in River Rock ink, and edges sponged with Close to Cocoa ink; Added two layers of ribbon from Sherbert Ribbon Originals with one pewter brad. Attached to card base.
The main image: Covered a chipboard circle from On Board Lots of Letters with Groovy Guava CS and stamped. Edges sanded. Cut out a Close to Cocoa CS circle for base of circle. Stamped 3 flowers on Confetti White CS and watercolored with Aqua-Painter. Used Color Spritzer tool and Close to Cocoa Stampin’ Write Marker to add more detail to middle of flowers. Added a Pewter Jumbo Eyelet and Rhinestone Brads to center of flowers. Attached with adhesive and stampin’ dimensionals.
