Has the Christmas shopping madness started for you yet? Oh my goodness! I am now avoiding the shops as much as I possibly can. But all that shopping put me in the right frame of mind to get in my craft room and create with good card sketch! Join us for this weeks Global Design Project
This is an interesting sketch, no? I was a little unsure of the direction I would take with this one. I decided to have a look in my pre-order goodie box for some inspiration. I settled on the itty bitty Ice cream cone stamp from the Tasty Trucks SAB set. I figured they would be super cute and colourful on a card just by themselves. Come January 4th, you can earn this set free with a $110 NZD purchase. You might want to start saving, this is the best Sale-A-Bration catalogue yet!
Lots of repeat stamping of the little cone, but photopolymer stamps make this so easy! You can see where to stamp without the use of a stamp placement tool. I have also used Early Espresso Ink because I didn't want the harsh lines of a black. If you leave the Early Espresso a few minutes before adding other colours, and you don't over work it, it doesn't run.
I then used my Many Marvelous Markers to colour in all the ice cream cones. I used Delightful Dijon for the cones and then chose a light and medium colour for each ice cream. The combinations I use were: Pink Pirouette/Blushing Bride, Soft Sky/Marina Mist, Mint Macaron/Wild Wasabi and Peekaboo Peach/Calypso Coral.
I tried to use some twine and create a tag as was indicated in the sketch but it just was not looking good! I love that sketches are open to interpretation so after a little bit of mucking around I chose to cut my image panel and use that as my feature. I then added my sentiment flag with Dimensionals over the split in the card and some enamel dots in my ice cream colours to finish.
