Hi Crafty Friends,
t’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Rebecca Ednie our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.
Being the third Saturday in the month it is time for a sketch challenge.
For my card today, I took the opportunity to play with some new floral stamps I purchased recently from Altenew. These flowers are from the Rinnie Roses Clear Stamp set. I also received some of Altenew's Artist Markers for my birthday at the end of last month, so I used those to color the flowers. The leaves were colored using Copics as I don't have any greens in Altenew Markers as yet. I guess that will be the next color I will need.
One of the things I like about the Altenew markers is that they match their ink pad colors etc. Of course as luck would have it, I don't have the colors I used for the roses, so I used the closest I could find to ink up the background I used for my card. The stamp used here is Hero Arts Ocean Waves Bold Print, I have a feeling I will be using this stamp a bit in the future.
I added a sentiment to the circle panel which is from Altenew's Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Clear Stamp set. I also added a fish tale flag to the side of the circle panel and then added transparent blue droplets to it.
For the inside of my card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set.
Along the top and bottom edges, I created a multi colored panel using the Hero Arts Ocean Waves Bold Prints stamp which I inked using the same colors I used on the front of the card. To create the wavy edge, I die cut the panels using one of the borders from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders die set.
I added a sentiment to the label using one of the sentiments from the Altenew Versatile Vases Clear Stamp set.
I added a few more flowers from the Rinnie Roses Clear stamp set to the bottom panel of the card and also to decorate the label.
