The new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches intrigued me. How could I pull this off and then a light bulb went off in my head - cleaning stopped - and I was off to create. Of course, it does not take much to let me leave cleaning and create or just do anything else.
I use a rectangle die to cut a piece of Bristol smooth card stock. I love to use this with my oxide inks. I also cut a scrap piece of paper to work out my cuts and once satisfied, I cut two dies into the shapes.
I smooshed oxide ink on my work surface and sprayed it with water. I dipped the large triangle and then sprayed with with water to make it lighter in color. The small triage was dipped a couple times to get a darker color. After this was done, I laid all three pieces on my work surface and added splatters (I have a problem with plain white - it is so plain - it scares me.)
I had a new floral stamp from Rubbernecker stamps and decided to stamp that on the large triangle with VersaFine black onys ink. I just kept moving the stamp over and down until I filled the bottom of the triangle. I stamped the sentiment with the same ink on the upper piece.
I made a top fold card base and adhered my pieces to the card base. After it was assembled on the card base I decided it needed just a little piece of something along that line. My Favorite Things has a 6 x 6 pad dedicated to black/white narrow stripe paper - one design straight and one design on the diagonal. It is wonderful. Thank you My Favorite Things for doing this. I then trimmed down the card base so the card sketch covers the entire front of the card base.
I liked it so much I had to make a second one but in a different color.
Addicted to Stamps and More's challenge this week is clean and simple.
The challenge at the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp is Anything Goes.
I am also entering this card into the challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps where the challenge is Ready For Summer. I love all the flowers in the summer. Before I had paper therapy I had dirt therapy which I still indulge in.
Thanks for stopping by. It has been a good week because I have gotten to do some creating this week. Being creative is so good for your inner soul.
