When I saw this sketch challenge I instantly knew what I wanted to create, and the bonus was, it was with my new stamps I got from Create a Smile last month! I saw the three circles and they had to be the rocks in the Fur Real stamp set and I had to add the cuties on top of those rocks!
I love how this card came out! I started by inking water color paper with dried marigold and spiced marmalade using a sunray stencil. I then die cut a stitched hill, heat embossed the ever so cute sentiment in black, and then inked with shabby shutters and bundled sage. Next, I splattered with water and white paint and set aside to dry.
I then had some fun experimenting with the fronds from the Fine Ferns stamp set stamping the solid ferns with shabby shutters and bundled sage. I then fussy cut them out to make two borders. Next, I stamped the outlined fronds with barely beige and tried some no line coloring with copic markers. They came out fabulous, they have a watercolor look!
I stamped the cuties on the rocks with a little masking, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. To put the card all together, I layered with lots of pop dots. I then finished it with a few gold sequins to give a little shine!
Thanks for swinging by,
