Hello, and welcome back! I'm here today to share another sketch challenge from Can You Case It. I missed last week as I was on a vacation, but I'm back today for all the fun!
Here is the cute sketch. Elizabeth from our Design Team contributed the sketch for this week!
I'm hanging onto summer with all my strength, so I decided to use the Garden In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. I used Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Wild Wasabi for this card. In order to get the lighter colors for the first layer, I sponged the ink onto the stamp and then stamped it. Then, the second layer (the more detailed layer) were stamped in full strength ink. This gives a lot of variety in the saturation of the colors as well. I splattered some Melon Mambo ink watered down onto the card front to give the background some interest.
For the butterflies, I sponged on Calypso Coral and then stamped Melon Mambo full strength. Then, I stamped the outline in Versamark ink onto Vellum Cardstock, and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. Then, I trimmed out the butterflies by hand and adhered the centers over the stamped butterflies. I used Crumb Cake Cardstock to layer the panels, and Soft Suede to stamp the greeting with. Some white sequins finish off the front.
I decorated the inside too, with the other half of the saying and some more stamped images. It's really simple, but makes the inside more interesting I think.
Well, that is all for today. I hope you'll join us at Can You Case It with your own creation inspired by this sketch! Thanks for stopping by.
