This is another 'first' for me - making a card using a 'sketch'!
Here's the sketch
It's from the
where the current challenge (set by the Basement Stamper) is to make something with this sketch using Stampotique stamps only.
Looking at some of the Design Teams' creations I'm guessing
that you only use the sketch as a guide and dimensions may
be altered? If anyone has some advice or guidance on this I'd
really appreciate it.
For my card, I used Stampotique's 'Heart Shirt' rubber stamp.
I coloured him with Promarkers cut him out and stuck him onto
some scrapbook paper.
I created a shadow around him with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed).
I masked off the background rectangle and coloured it in
with Distress Inks (Mustard Seed and Stormy Sky).
The band across the card I shamelessly copied from one
of the cards on the Challenge Blog - ie, used sequin waste
as a mask and coloured through it with the Stormy Sky Distress Ink.
The word 'Giggle' is a rub on, and mustn't forget
the Crown on the birthday boy's head
highlighted with some Platinum Stickles.
I don't normally like having to make birthday cards, but using a sketch
took a lot of the hard work out of this one, and I think I'll be
using them again!
I'll be linking this to the Stampotique Designer Challenge Blog
- as this is what they say:
".... we encourage you to break out your Stampotique stamps and join our creative design team for your chance to add to your stamp collection with a prize of $30 gift certificate for stamps at Stampotique. We will randomly pick a winner with the announcement of the next challenge".
Well, it'd be rude not to!
