Welcome to our 16th sketch challenge blog hop! Today’s sketch has been designed by Amanda Charlesworth.
For a long time I couldn’t decide if I wanted to create a 3D project or a card for this sketch. But because I definitely feel more confident as a card maker, I saved myself some stress 😉 and sticked with card project.
I altered the sketch a little bit and added my own twist to it. Base of my card is Whisper White Thick A4 cardstock that measure 8-1/4″x 5-7/8″, and folded in half at 4-1/8″. Next, I cut two panels: one from regular Whisper White and one Smoky Slate. Both measured 4″x 5-6/8″. I took the Smoky Slate panel and using multi-wave die from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, I die cut one piece of ‘waves’.
Savvy Tip: Save the bottom scrap piece for some masking later on.
I took scribble circle stamp from Swirly Bird Stamp Set and stamp it repeatedly in Smoky Slate over the Smoky Slate panel, overlapping and stamping off, until whole piece was covered.
Now I took Whisper White panel and that Smoky Slate scrap piece I saved earlier to create glimmer bottom layer for my wavy die-cut. I lined up straight edge of my scrap with bottom edge of Whisper White and squished Versamark pad over the bottom piece of that Whisper White panel. I didn’t want to cover entire panel, only the part that will be peaking through the ‘wavy’ piece. I sprinkled Heat & Stick Powder over it and heat embossed until melted. Next, I added Dazzling Diamond Glitter over it and heat embossed again to secure glitter in place. But why I used that leftover scrap of Smoky Slate, you may wondering? I’ve used it to make sure the very bottom of my WW panel won’t be covered in glitter, so I had a nice spot for my sentiment.
I adhered Smoky Slate panel and ‘waves’ to the Whisper White panel. To finish off my card, I took beautiful ‘I’m here for you’ sentiment from Weather Together Stamp Set and stamped it in Basic Black at bottom left corner of my panel. I also added couple of rhinestones at bottom right corner for a good measure. I’ve mounted the whole piece to the card base using dimensionals.
I really like how this card turned out. Clean and simple. I hope you like my take on the sketch too.
