Hello again everyone. Today I am back with my second post this month for the My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge. A new week, a new sketch and a new card are here already!
So, here is this week’s sketch.
And here is my take on the sketch. I flipped the sketch upside down and used my rays as the lines. This is the fun of doing the sketch challenge – you do not have to be precise. The sketch is there for inspiration and to help kick start your creativity, and it is fun to see where it can take you.
I began by creating the background panel. I took some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and masked off an area so that I could create my grass. I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks for this and I blended softly, building up the layers gradually. I then moved the mask over the grass area and added Tumbled Glass Distress Ink above it. I took the Radiating Rays stencil and added some more Tumbled Glass through it, and also a small touch of Salty Ocean. So there is a slight ombre with the darkest colours appearing just behind the images.
I then stamped my images with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink. The little girl is from Grande-Sized Love and her two friends are from Sweater Weather In The Woods. I thought they made a lovely friendly bunch all having their coffee together and making memories! They were coloured with Copics (numbers listed below) and then die cut with the coordinating dienamics. I took a sentiment from Sweater Weather In The Woods and stamped it onto the inked panel with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then popped my images on top.
