Here's a new project that I just completed for a sketch challenge sponsored by Another Stamp Company on Rubber Stamp Chat. The challenge was to create a card with a similar layout to one that was posted. Everyone who participated was entered into a drawing for a few sheets of free stamps.
Here's how I made the card:
1. Using my new stamps from The Enchanted Gallery, I stamped the images of the women onto gray card stock I had cut into 1.5" squares using black StazOn ink.
2. After the girls were stamped, I colored them in using colored pencils.
3. Once the gils were colored, I attached each gray square to a larger square of sparkly lilac card stock. Once that was done I set the girls off to the side.
4. Using silver pigment ink, I stamped a pattern using a flourish stamp (available at Michael's) onto the left side of the card.
5. I sprinkled on some "Stuck on You!" bonding powder over the flourishes and applied Rainbow Silver Stampee Foil using the traditional pouch laminator method (there's a video tutorial of this method on the right column of this blog).
6. After the foil was applied, I cut two thin strips of paper, which I layered, to run down the center of the card. The bottom paper has a geometric gray and white design, and the top is a white vellum with a small polka dot pattern.
7. Once I glued down the center strip of paper, I used 3 dimensional double sided tape to attach the girls to the right side of the card.
Wish me luck on those free stamps!
