Hi everyone! We have a new sketch challenge for you at STAMPlorations! Click here for the challenge post with amazing inspiration from STAMPlorations Design Team along with our guest designer Carol. Carol created a fun card with the celebration-themed STAMPlorations stamps -you don't want to miss it in her entertaining blog Just Me: c! As you can see from the DT projects, the sketch is very versatile... I can't wait to see what you all create with it!
In my DT card I used the brand new sunflower stamp from the Bloom Sketches stamp set. The set has just been released and it's full of gorgeous blooms and fun sentiments. Before stamping I stenciled all my card pieces lightly with a brick wall stencil (if you are looking for stencils, check out the selection at STAMPlorations store here ). I did my stamping with two inks: first with orange and then with black. I was not very precise with the black ink and did not press the stamp down too hard -this left some orange peeking through and I got myself two-toned flowers! I sponged the edges with DIs and tried to go for a sort of vintage look. I can't remember when I've done this many layers in a card!
Don't forget that if you've participated in the first sketch challenge of August, enter this current sketch challenge along with our monthly challenge here you have a chance to win an extra prize (photo below).
