This week at still addINKtive we have a sketch and colour challenge for you.
You might choose to do them both but you can just choose the colours or just the sketch. Whatever you get inspiration from!
I decided to use the 2 newest editions to my stamp shelf, Vintage Verses and By the Seashore.
I was looking at cards made with the Seashore set and came across a great tutorial by Sharon Field for a technique called Faux Cheesecloth. She even used bashful blue in one of her samples and I just had to give it a try. It looks like netting (or cheesecloth) and is super easy yet very effective.
All the stamping on this card is clear embossed espresso. The middle shell is stamped onto crumb cake but the other two are stamped onto vanilla. I sponged a little crumb cake onto the shells, added a few white pen highlights and cut them out.
Stamps : By the Seashore, Vintage Verses, woodgrain
Card : vanilla, crumb cake, white, bashful blue, espresso, first edition dsp
Ink : espresso, crumb cake, versamark
Other : big shot, top note, labels framelit, clear embossing powder, white embossing powder, linen thread
The design team have created some really beautiful cards again this week. I hope you’ll take a look and play along with us.
