I'm finally back to share a card with you. Hope you've enjoyed the holidays and had a pleasant start into the new year. I myself am slowly trying to get back into the swing of things ;-)
The Stempelgarten Challenge already started two days ago– this month's theme is «No-Line Coloring».
I'm pretty new to this technique but I often admire other cardmakers using it. For Christmas, I received a big pack of Prismacolor Pencils and I couldn't wait to color with them. Although it's pretty cold outside and we also got some snow, I made this floral more spring-themed card.
I love the look of colored pencils on Kraft cardstock, so I stamped the My Favorite Things «Spring Tulips» (I did some Masking to create the bouquet) in Memento «Desert Sand». I really enjoyed the coloring, although it's not perfect.
Since my mojo was still in holiday mode, I followed the current sketch of the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge:
I die cut my colored image with the MFT «Stitched Oval Scallop Edge Frames». For the frame I stacked three layers of cardstock to give it some dimension and then inlaid the oval. The patterned paper is from the MFT «Dots & Stripes Neutral 6x6 Paper Pack» and I adhered it to a light pink card base.
Next, I chose a stitched banner from the «Blueprints 28» Die-namics set and cut it from raspberry colored cardstock. I white heat embossed the sentiment (MFT «Essential Sentiments») and popped up the strip with foam tape. Finally, I added three iridescent sequins.
You will have time until January 31st, 2017 to join our challenge and this is the prize you could win:
A craft package from the Stempelgarten Online Shop with a value of CHF 20.–.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
