Sketch Challenge 590 | Make Waves

The sketch challenge 590 is out on My Favorite Things. I had saved the Bubbly Birthday for May but this sketch was just too perfect for them to not use them. I colored one of them and then combined the mermaid with the Island Shell-ebration stamp set as they go so good together!

For the background I used my favorite ink color Sno Cone and blended it over the Classic Edges Stencil in a square that I masked out with the background die from the Blueprints 27 and some masking paper. I did buy the Classic Edges Stencil to use it for waves. I also added some splatters in Caribbean Sea Ink, Cornflower Ink, White Gesso and some Silver Shimmering Water color for texture. Not sure about that choice, but I’m ok with it.

I finished it off with my usual white heat embossed sentiment on colored cardstock. This time I choose to go with the Summer Splash Cardstock and I love the contrast. If you want to see the other my favorite sketch challenges I have entered you can find them HERE.

2 Mini Art Journal Layouts

I’m a big fan of Vicky Papaioannou and her style of art journals. The are a perfect mix of messy and control. So decided to use that style but in a mini format and with my stamps and coloring that I love. My mini art journal will be a hodge podge of different styles as I play and learn, but I’m ok with that. My word of the year is creativity and that is what I will embrase.

Todays two layouts started with my left over images. I always color a bunch more images than I need when I do a project, so that I have them there if I feel I need to pivot. And I save all of those images in little bowls on my craft table. Well they are starting to become a lot so I decided to use some of them up.

I love the little stones and mountains (that comes from a recently retired stamp set) so the first layout got a pumice stone background together with a postage tissue paper as the idea was travel. I did add a circus artist as he was on a unibike, but I did cut off his hat to make it look more travel related.

For my second layout I started with the sentiment “Love, Laugh, Create” from my own Sentiment Strip cards (which you can buy from HERE) and decided to use the violin playing mouse. I did also add the bunnies from the same stamp set to fill out the place. For color I used abandoned coral paint mixed with some white gesso to mimic tattered rose, and I painted that over the “Melange” tissue paper that I had.

Sketch Challenge 582 | The Best Birthday Ever

With everything going on in the world this card was hard to create, I even considered just not to do it. But at the same time being creative can help mentally. It’s not my best card, but I do like it. I followed the sketch challenge 582 over at My Favorite Things.

I want to finish this by saying. I know that I sit safety here in Sweden, but I’m so scared over what is going on in Ukraine. Ukraine is a free democratic country and I hope that it will stay that way.

Sketch Challenge 581 | I Camp Believe

Going into every sketch challenge I have a little list of supplies to pick from to have a head start before I see how the sketch look. With this weeks sketch challenge 581, that all flu out of the door. When I saw the challenge I saw the way I wanted to make the card in my head immediately. I just needed to use the Adorable Adventure stamp set. Happily enough the stamps fitted perfectly with the different levels of the sketch. Then we had the color scheme, which was the easiets. Have been using the G40s and E40s a lot lately and they fitted the images perfectly, I added the Ts for the grey and whites and finally B0000 for the snow on the mountains.

For the base of the levels I used my new favorite ink color, Sno Cone to blend over some cloud masks I made with the Cloud Trio Die-namics. Before blending I also masked off the card base so I only had the three different stripes. I then colored up a whole bunch of stamped images from the Adorable Adventure and fussy cut them out. I placed them on the different levels and then I stamped a sentiment on the bottom.

Sketch Challenge 580 – Will You Be My Valentine?

Sometimes a card takes minutes, sometimes days and sometimes even weeks. I have had the basic idea of what I wanted for awhile. It wasn’t until I saw this weeks sketch challenge 580 over at My Favorite Things that the last piece come together.

I picked up some new stamps in January, and I stamped them and colored them in front of the tv. I have already used the bears from the same stamp set, but I really liked how I colored up the bunnies in the boat. So I have been waiting to use that image. I did try last week to make something with them, but the card wasn’t balanced and I decided to use another image.

But this time it all came together. I also got to use two new stencils I hadn’t used yet. If you don’t recognise the little waves in the heart, that is because that haul is coming up on Wednesday. Hope you enjoy the card and if you wanna see how I interpreted previous challenges you will find them HERE.
