Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a card I made for Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #132 - Sketch Challenge. I finally purchased the Lovely Blooms stamp set, and was so excited I was able to use it for this challenge!
To start this card, I die cut the scalloped frame from NND Frames and Flags die set out of white card stock. I blended Distress Oxide Inks Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch making a gorgeous blue background! I then added a tiny bit of water to some white gouache and flicked it onto the background. Setting the background aside to dry, I stamped out the beautiful images from NND Lovely Blooms stamp set. I colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
Next, I cut out two banners using a die from NND Frames and Flags die set. I die cut one out of the same white glitter card stock I used as my card base, and one out of regular white card stock so I could use it for the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in black pigment ink, and clear heat embossed for some shine! I then used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink to ink the edges of the sentiment banner.
It took a little time to figure out the placement for all of the images, but once I had an arrangement I liked, I used liquid glue, thin foam squares, and regular foam squares to adhere all of the images. I adhered the glitter banner with liquid glue, and the sentiment banner with thin foam squares.
Copic colors used:
- V01, V04, V05, V06, V09
- R81, R83, R85, R89
- Y000, Y11, Y13, Y15
- YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67
- G21, G24, G94, G99
- BG0000, BG000, BG01
- G21, G24, G94, YG67, BG000
The last color combo I used on the flower stems. I applied the BG000 over the other colors to make it look like they were in the glass jar.
I finished off this card with glitter Stickles for the Hydrangea centers, a couple spots of glossy accents, and a few raindrop crystals! Thank you and I hope you enjoyed my card today!
