Welcome to my blog and another Wednesday Sketch Challenge #534 for My Favorite Things. This challenge is for a slimline card and here below is my inspiration card. I certainly hope you play along for a chance to win a $50 gift card to MFT. You need to visit the MFT blog for the link to enter your challenge card.
To create this card I used the Basket Weave stencil together with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Seedless Preserves and I used Clarity Stencil Brushes to brush on the ink. I first positioned the stencil top left of the panel and then once I'd ink blended to a fade I repositioned it to the bottom right hand corner and repeated the ink blending towards the centre of the panel leaving an area with barely any ink on it for a focal point. I used the Slimline Starter Die-namics and die cut the stencilled panel. I adhered this panel to a slimline panel of Grapesicle Heavyweight Cardstock.
I used the Skinny Strips Die-namics to die cut 6 sentiment strips from Grapesicle, Cotton Candy and Princess Pink Cardstock. I stamped the sentiments from Wish You Were Hare to the strips, backed them with foam tape and carefully aligned them per the sketch and applied them.
I stamped the adorable Hare from the stamp set on Copic friendly cardstock. I used Copic markers to colour the image, points were highlighted with a white gel pen and I then used the coordinating Die-namics to die cut the image which I backed with foam tape and applied it perched on the sentiment strip to ground it.
Last but not least I stamped the mini hearts and added a little colour to them and finished with a few sparkling clear sequin accents.
I'd love it if you entered the challenge and I wish you the best of luck.
