Good morning crafters! Hope you are all well and managing to fit lots of crafting into your busy schedules.
I decided to enter another challenge, mostly to take my mind of England taking a thrashing in the cricket this morning! Having said that, by the time I finished the card and started this blog post, things were looking much better and maybe by the time I finish this we will know the result!
So, I saw a card this morning by my friend Ruth, which she had entered into the Sugar Pea Designs sketch challenge. I visited their blog and decided I would have a go at entering the challenge, using the sketch SPDSS46.
Here is my finished entry.
Yes, I know, I know, I have used the same fab little dog from the Avery Elle Furry Friends stamp set as I used in my previous post. He’s so cute, so why not? And, as before, I was lucky enough to have already coloured him with my Derwent coloursoft pencils during the recent colouring challenge (yes! still using up all those images!). I love love love how you can create texture with the pencils on these little animals.
To begin, I layered the MFT Chevron Paper and the green cardstock banner onto a white card base. I had to cut the banner as I don’t own any banner dies, and I also created faux stitching with my Signo Uni-ball broad white gel pen! Just as good as a stitched banner, although it doesn’t stop me wanting to own a set 🙂
Next up was to create the round feature panel. I cut a suitably sized MFT faux pierced circle and layered it onto a larger vellum circle. I am loving vellum at the moment!
I then adhered the dog and bowl onto the vellum and popped up the ball with a foam adhesive dot. The greeting is from the Furry Friends stamp set and I used Versafine Onyx Black (my favourite ink for sentiments).
Next, I added a Martha Stewart scallop dot punched strip, just to add a bit of interest. Then I adhered the white round panel to the vellum and then both onto the banner. Voila! The card is almost complete.
The final touch was to cut a little paper banner, pop it onto a larger vellum banner and glue it to the panel. I overdid the glue a bit and it looks a little bit crumpled but I am hoping if I stick it under my RHS Garden Plant Encyclopedia for a few hours it will flatten out lol!!!!
I then added the two faux stitched lines to the little banner using the same white gel pen.
And, we won the cricket!
I hope you like the card, thank you for stopping by and I will see you all soon!
