And here is my card using both the theme and sketch. I created the background with some Distress Inks that I added on my craft mat and spray with water, then I dipped my watercolor paper on it. I used Craft heater to dry it. When it was dry completely, I placed the ARTplorations Stencil – Star Align on my card and added some white gesso. I did not cover the whole background with it, just some in the middle. Then I set it aside to dry.

While the gesso was drying, I worked on the sentiment. I cut a strip of Black Cardstock, I stamped the hashtag awesome from Bold Sentiment – Hashtag Authentic stamp set with VersaMark ink pad and added some Super Fine Embossing Powder on it. I heat set it with Craft Heater. Then I cut out a strip of White Daisy Cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I checked the background card but it was still a bit wet so I dried it with my craft heater before I added the sentiment strips on it. This craft heater is a handy tool for sure 😀 Once the stenciled background dried completely, I added the black embossed sentiment first with adhesive runner and then the white one with 3D foam tape. I finished the card with Triangle Durable studs.

I hope you will play along with STAMPlorations July Theme and Sketch Challenge and I am looking forward to see your projects! THANK YOU for visiting and have a fabulous blessed day!
