The Layout Sketch Challenge
The Card Sketch Challenge
The Bible verse Theme Challenge – 2 Corinthian 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.”
And this month, I play along with the Card Sketch challenge. Here’s the card I created:
I embossed the card based using my WRMK Evolution Advanced and CTMH Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. Using Watercolor brush, I pick some Hollyhock Exclusive ink from the ink pad lid and splatter it on the card randomly while I squeezed the water out. Have to be very careful to do this because you do not want the water to flow too much out of the brush and will soak your card.
Then I let the card based dry on the side. While it was drying, I cut a piece of White Daisy cardstock for the tag using my Silhouette Cameo and punch the bottom of the tag using Scallop Border Punch. Then tie up a piece of Baker’s twine I had in stash (I forgot the color’s name of it… sorry! But it is grey and white).
For the flowers, on White Daisy cardstock, I stamped the flowers from The Big, The Bold and Extras set from Winnie & Walter using Hollyhock and Blush (retired, replaced with new pretty color, Pixie) Exclusive Ink Pads, then the leaves using Pear and Topiary Exclusive Ink Pads. Then I cut them using micro-tip scissors. I arranged them on the tag and glued them using glue pen. Then added some Sparkle Clear Assortment gems. From the same stamp set, I stamped the banner and sentiment using Black Exclusive ink pad. I added the banner on top of the flower cluster using 3D Foam Tape.
Before adding the tag on the card base, check to make sure the splatter ink is dry completely, if not, you can use any embossing heater to dry it, like I did using my Craft Heater. When it was completely dry, I added the border paper and arrow that I cut out from Heartstrings paper packet (lovely paper for this theme). Final step is to add the tag on the card. I glued the twine using a little bit of Liquid Glass (all-purpose liquid glue, dries clear, strong – best glue I ever used!) so it stays on the card, not flapping around. And my card is done 🙂
