Good afternoon folks, I am proud to be able to say that it is my first post of the official new STAMPlorations challenge design team. Today it is the launch of our next sketch challenge.
Here is my take on the sketch
and this is the sketch for you to use.
To start I masked off a strip to one side and stamped a background birthday text stamp in black. I then added a strip of NitWits paper down the left hand side.
For the main focus of my card I used one of the Boxed Blooms which I stamped and heat embossed in white. I then used a Versamark pen to draw another square around the box then embossed again in white.
I used the colours in the DP in DIs to colour the bloom using a w/c technique. I extended the petals and stem into the space between the stamp and the extra border with a couple of brush strokes then filled the background with a blue wash.
The happy was stamped using part of a Bloom Sketches phrase in black and the birthday was diecut using a Spellbinders die from black card.
So that's it for my first official challenge post, check out the rest of the girls and the GDs over at the blog and have a go,you never know unless you do.
I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
