I love being in Tofino, I get so much done here. I don't know why it is, but I am so much more inspired here and sometimes it just flows out of my brain. LOL. I was searching for a sketch to use for a card this morning. I had no plans really, just any card I could make with the limited resources I have here in the trailer with me. I went to Splitcoast Stampers, and it was Sketch Challenge Wednesday. There I found an awesome sketch to start the creative juices flowing. I brought Bella Bleu DSP with me, and my set Asian Artistry was on the table where my SIL was creating the punchies she missed in my last classes. So I thought, hey! I can use that....... Here is the result of the sketch (SCS277), and my limited supplies........
and here is a picture of the flowers up close:
I wanted to make the flowers 3D so I stamped the image again on Very Vanilla, cut out the 3 flowers, then took my black marker and went around the outside to cover up the little missed parts of the vanilla cardstock. Then I coloured them with my Stampin' Write markers.
Here's a list of the supplies I used:
Stamps: Asian Artistry, Hugs and Wishes
Ink: Basic Black
Markers: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Paper: Bella Bleu
Cardstock: Crumb Cake (aka Kraft), Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
I did not use much to make this card, the DSP and the 3D flower makes it eye popping, I think. The sketch is quite easy too, and I did not even use any embellishments - no ribbon, no buttons, no punches. Weird, I know. But wait for my next post, I have created another Magnolia card which uses lots of embellies and punches......
Bye for now from sunny awesome Tofino on the beach... Glenda Mollet
