I'm stopping in to share a SWEET Encouragement Card I've made for the May Reverse Confetti Sketch for you to Try #48 Challenge!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Sketch for this Month and actually got some time to Play Along!! Whoop Whoop!! I've had these New Goodies to play with and I'm HAPPY I FINALLY got to use them!! =)
So here's what I came up with!!
LOVE it!! (Well atleast I HOPE it'll bring a HUGE SMILE to her Face!!??) I started by Stamping and Embossing all of my Images from the Reverse Confetti All About Ewe Stamp Set with Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and Judikins Clear Detail Embossing Powder!! Then I Die Cut them out using the coordinating All About Ewe Die Set!! I wanted to Paper Piece the Sweet Sheep and the Bird so I used some of the Reverse Confetti Stone Cardstock and some MFT Gingham Patterned Paper for the Sheep and then I used some of the Reverse Confetti True Love 6x6 Paper Pad and the Reverse Confetti Cloud White Cardstock for the Bird and the rest of my Images!! I Colored the Images with Copic Markers and then added some Details to the Paper Pieced Images using Copic Markers too!! I wanted to create a Sunny Sky Inked Background so I used the Reverse Confetti Sunburst Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and created my Own Stencil using some of The Crafter's Workshop Clear Solid Stenciling Sheets!! Then I used some Masking Tape and Taped off the Bottom of the Stencil to fit my Card Design and Inked it up using Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber!! Then I covered it with some Judikins Clear Detail Embossing Powder!! I then Inked over the Embossed Sunburst Image using some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink!! I Inked up the Ground using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink after I Making off the Sky!! I Masked off the Ground and for even more Interest I added some Black Soot and Picket Fence Distress Paint Splatters, along with some Water Splatters too!! I LOVE the Texture it adds to the Sky!! Once I started to put the Card together I decided that the Inked Sky Background was alittle too BOLD so I Die Cut a Piece of Vellum and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the Vellum then I adhered it to the Card Base!! Then I added my Images and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!! For some finishing touches I added a XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts Die Set Die Cut to the bottom of the Card in Kraft Cardstock some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to the Birds Beak and the Flower Centers!! I added some Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to the Sheep, the Bird and the Flowers for some added Sparkle!! I used a Black Gel Pen to coat the Eyes, the Hooves and the Nail Heads on the Fence!! I think ALL of these little details just MAKE the Images POP and finishes them off!!
So what do you think!!?? =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
