Crafts 4 Eternity - Let's Get Sketchy (and creative)

Hi friends - welcome back, thanks for stopping by to visit!

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity, we have a little sketch for you! I was limited on time but when I did sit down to create, I challenged myself to a one layer card (OK, mounted on some cardstock THEN mounted on the card - STOP; it's as close to one layer as I get!! :D - HA HA HA)... I love how this turned out! I played around with some new techniques **to me**.

First up, here's the sketch. And one lucky participant will win 3 free digis from Michele's Craft 4 Eternity store, found HERE.

As you can see, this has quite a few layers, I think I did pretty good keeping it more CAS and one layer. I stamped the linen background in MFT's Grout Grey, then used an acrylic block to stamp two rectangles with MFT inks - the back one is Pink Lemonade, the front one is Red Hot. They were stamped on Tim Holtz water color paper; so the combination of an acrylic block and water color paper gives this amazing, fun, textured-like image! I then stamped the flowers from Verve's Kind Words in MFT's Chocolate Brown, adhered some washi tape and stamped the sentiment below the tape - also in Chocolate Brown. I spritzed the entire card heavily with MFT's Sheer Shimmer Mix-ables Mist (uber tough to see in the pictures...bummer!), but its gorgeous IRL! The shimmer mixed with the ink allowed them to run a little bit adding to the water color look.


I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and a white pearl to the center of each. I dropped on Glimmer Mist in Creme de Chocolate and Candy Apple Red.

Super fun - I hope you'll take the sketch and join the fun. We cannot wait to see what you create.

Thanks again; have a great weekend!

Hugs,
