I've been a bit awol in doing the sketch challenges over at Tuesday Morning Sketches but got this one done about Wednesday afternoon. It is Sketch #438 and here's the design:
I pretty much stayed with the sketch and used it for a card sample for a Feb. 23 class I'll be teaching. Are you ready?
It's weird how the stamped layer looks like it's sticking out but that's just an optical illusion, this is a standard A2 card, no wonky shapes. I used a new set called Let's Eat Cake that I just got three weeks ago. It's in our Bloom This Way Trends Mini catalog. The cool print paper is out of our Spring Filled Prints collection. And on top of the cake are embellishments called Rainbow Drops. I just restocked those recently.
The Rainbow Drops do need some glue dots as they're not self adhesive but I'm fine with that, who doesn't have oodles of glue dots?
I had trouble getting the light right to show off the Happy Birthday banner. I used our Journey Glaze on it then sprinkled it with some Sparkle Dust (a very fine glitter). It really pops!
Other products used are:
Card stocks: Whip Cream, Rich Coral, Cool Pool, and Pineapple Smoothie
Ink: Black Licorice
Color Burst Pencils
Glue Dots, Foam Squares, Easy Glide Runner
Grand Pro Shears and Details Pro Shears
This is now the end of my post and so please head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches for a lot of others who used this sketch! And by the way, Happy Groundhog Day!
