Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #233

Thankful 

This is my card for the design team for The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week. We'd love it if you'd join us with your interpretation of the sketch shown below. 

Thankful 

I added distress ink to a background stamp from Rubbernecker, spritzed water on it and then added my cardstock on top. After smoothing the paper out, I peeled the paper off the stamp and ended up with this watercolor print. 

Thankful 

For my wreath I used some jute I have in my stash. I wrapped it around a Dylusions paint jar to get the shape. I tied a knot on one side to keep it together. I watercolored some cardstock and diecut a banner and then stamped my sentiment. The sentiment is an older one from October Afternoon. All supplies are listed below. 

Thankful

I found some leaves in my stash. I picked these up a few years ago at Michaels. 


Supplies:
Rubbernecker Stamp: Branch Shadow
Taylored Expressions: Stitched Banner Stacklets Die
Distress Oxide Inks: spiced marmalade, abandoned coral, fossilized amber, lucky clover
Jute
October Afternoon: Fall Fun Stamp Set

So Very Thankful

I finished my card for the design team that I'm on just by the skin of my teeth! Normally I try to work ahead if at all possible. For some reason I struggled with this sketch! It's such an easy sketch, I'm not sure what my problem was. I kept going over and over in my head what I wanted to do. I'd start working on my card and then scrap the whole thing. I'm just happy I finished it and can move forward!


So Very Thankful

I used a stencil from Stampin' Up with fossilized amber distress oxide ink. I brushed it on with one of my Clarity brushes. The butterflies were cut using two Martha Stewart punches. I took painters tape and added fossilized amber and black soot ink to my cardstock before punching the butterflies.

So Very Thankful

For my sentiment I used a stamp from Gina K Designs.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #229

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge


It's hard to believe, but I used five dies for this card! I die cut the circle, the stitched banner, the hello sentiment, the flowers and leaves and the border on my background. All supplies are listed below. 

For my background I used distress oxide inks. I added the ink to my craft mat and spritzed water on it. I then crumpled up some plastic wrap, dipped it into the various inks and then dabbed it onto my card panel. I wasn't quite sure what ink combinations I wanted to use. I looked on my Pinterest board that I  have set up called Color Combinations and decided to use one that I pinned from Simon Says Stamp. Since I don't have mustard seed in distress oxide, I substituted fossilized amber. 

For my flowers and leaves I used a wreath die from Spellbinders. I just cut it apart and used what I wanted. I used the leftover scraps from by background pieces.
