After dealing with my two girlies who have had the flu for a few days, I decided to get my craft on this weekend. I came across the Fusion Card Challenge and decided to play along this time around.
Here is the sketch/photo inspiration:
And here is the card I made:
Yellow isn't one of my favorite colors, so it was different for me to work with for this challenge. I am so happy with the way the card turned out, though. I used my gray ink pad and a water pen to do the shading on the jar and used four different Paper Smooches sets. For the jar and flowers, I used Crystal Clear; I used part of the "Love" sentiment from Warm Hearts and the heart from Word Salad to make the word "Love"; I used the happy anniversary sentiment and letters from the deepest sympathy stamp from Good Gab to create the rest of the sentiment. I learned of a stamp masking technique from a Paper Smooches video Savannah O'Gwynn put together. Stamp masking is NO JOKE. I started over four times before I finally got this to look the way I wanted it. It's tedious but man is it cool to be able to create your own sentiment from bits and pieces of a bunch of other stamps!
I will also be linking this up to this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Anything Goes. Because, why not, right?
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...
