Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #229

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge


It's hard to believe, but I used five dies for this card! I die cut the circle, the stitched banner, the hello sentiment, the flowers and leaves and the border on my background. All supplies are listed below. 

For my background I used distress oxide inks. I added the ink to my craft mat and spritzed water on it. I then crumpled up some plastic wrap, dipped it into the various inks and then dabbed it onto my card panel. I wasn't quite sure what ink combinations I wanted to use. I looked on my Pinterest board that I  have set up called Color Combinations and decided to use one that I pinned from Simon Says Stamp. Since I don't have mustard seed in distress oxide, I substituted fossilized amber. 

For my flowers and leaves I used a wreath die from Spellbinders. I just cut it apart and used what I wanted. I used the leftover scraps from by background pieces.

When I saw that The Color Throwdown Challenge was for red, black and white I knew I was going to create a card for it! Black and red are two of my favorite colors for cards. For quite awhile I've gone out of my comfort zone and used other colors because there for awhile I used these two colors a lot! I almost always use black. I will never not be able to do that. 

Please take the time to check out the cards that their design team have created. They are just awesome and gorgeous!

For my card I used distress oxide ink with a stencil. After I made three other panels (which I will use for other cards), I made one more and settled on this one. I just couldn't make a decision on which I liked best! I inked up my stencil from The Crafter's Workshop spritzed it with water and then laid my cardstock on the stencil.

I used a die set from Simon Says Stamp called Perfect Shapes for the hexagons. This die set also has a matching stamp set. The wildflower is a die from Sizzix.

Sympathy Cards

Sympathy Cards

I played around my a stamp set from Gina K Designs called Sending Love for these two cards. I took a 6 in by 8 in piece of white cardstock and stamped all over it with different stamps from the set. When I was satisfied with how it looked I cut it in half and used two different distress oxide inks and just blended them over the whole piece of cardstock. All supplies are listed below.

I the splatted each panel with Distress Paint.

I love how they turned out! I really need to do this with more of my stamp sets. I have so many that have so many unused stamps. Using more of the set really give you a lot more mileage out of your stamps. 

I'm linking my blue card to these challenges:

Supplies:
Distress Oxide Ink: wilted violet and salty ocean
Gina K Stamps: Sending Love and Scripty Sayings
Distress Paint: picket fence
Versafine Ink: black onyx
Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles: blue jean glitter
