Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

This week's Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers was very fun. They all have been fun. I don't think I've done one I don't like yet!!! I have missed a few of them here and there, not because I didn't like them but because I didn't have time to play that day.

I used the Stampin' Up! set "True Friend," "Boho Backgrounds" and "Fun & Fast Notes" to make this card.

For the flower part of this card I stamped the whole thing in Soft Sky ink. I then took a blender pen and wiped off the color on the leaves and stem. I picked up the Blue Bayou in pad and used one corner of it and went around the edges of the flower. Much like you would do with the "Rock 'n Roll" technique. Then I took the Old Olie marker and colored in the leaves and stems. I highlighted them a little using the Always Artichoke marker. I huffed on it to get the steam from my breath on the rubber to moisten the ink up and stamped it on a piece of white card stock. I sponged the edges in Blue Bayou. I layerd it on a piece of black card stock and added the brad.

For the #2 part of the card I used a piece of Soft Sky card stock and stamped the flowers from the "Boho Backgrounds" set on it using Soft Sky ink. I sponged the edges in Soft Sky ink and layered it on a piece of black card stock.

The #1 part of the card was done using a piece of white card stock and stamping the flowers from the "Boho Backgrounds" set on it using Soft Sky ink. I sponged the edges in Soft Sky ink and layered it on a piece of black card stock.

I felt the upper right needed just a little something so I took the birthday stamp from the "Fun & Fast Notes" set and used a marker and colored over the words "Happy Birthday." Then I punched it out with the small oval punch and sponged the edges with Blue Bayou. I punched the larger oval out using Blue Bayou card stock. I took a black marker and went around the edges of the large oval with it. I added it in the upper left corner.

For the #3 piece I took the Blue Bayou ribbon and added a piece of black card stock behind it and pated it in place over the Soft Sky piece.

I added some Dimensionals on the flower piece before I set it in place. This was such a fun card to do and I am sure going to miss the Blue Bayou and the Soft Sky colors!!!
