Hello… my that fortnight went by quickly and it’s time for a new challenge at the Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog.
This fortnight it is using a sketch to create a card…. and here is the sketch…
I fancied using my gelliplate to create a background and had an urge to add a rainbow onto it so here is what I made.
So I created the first square in the background using my gelli plate mini and soft sky ink.
Then I did a similar technique once it was dry but with the acrylic block to create a slightly darker square. I outlined both of these with a silver pen to add definition.
The vertical strip I created by using the raindrops stamp from the rainbows and sunshine stamps and then also stamped the sentiment from the same set in Iced spruce distress oxide.
Then I created my rainbow…
I coloured the cardstock with stampin write markers and then die cut each slice of rainbow out. I also cut a white cloud out and adhered them all together.
I then coated each of the cloud, the rainbow and added a little to each raindrop too in wink of Stella so it is super sparkly in real life.
I didn’t want to do my usual trick of using blocks of paper to recreate the sketch and it was nice to break out of my comfort zone a little with this card, whilst keeping the essence of the sketch visible.
I hope you like the final effect.
Now please go see what the rest of the design team made on the challenge … it’s amazing how differently it can be interpreted.
