I am popping in with a quick card to share today. When I saw this week's ColourQ colors, I just knew I had to play along. I am also playing along with Retro Sketch and Just Us Girls masculine card challenge.
I am using MFT Stamps Products unless otherwise noted. I started with MFT card stocks in smooth white and black licorice card stocks. I am using PTI blueberry for the color brocade blue. I die cut the blueberry using Vertical Stitch Strips. I die cut the black with Blueprints 13 stitched panel. I cut it again with Blueprints 15 stitch panel to make it more narrow to comply with sketch. I stamped the blue panel with fine check background in versamark pressing on certain areas for a more distressed stamped look. I stamped the black panel with linen background using versamark for some subtle texture.
I stamped a smooth white panel using Forget Me Not stamp set sentiment strip to stamp repeatedly using steel gray ink to create a newsprint looking background. I cut a strip of this using vertical stitched strips die namics. I layered the three panels and used foam mounting tape to pop up for added dimension.
Next, I worked on the focal image. I die cut the circle scribble flowers die namics using smooth white. I used Circle Scribble Flowers stamp set and stamped the layers using sno cone and summer crush inks. I stamped the scribble image by stamping in black licorice ink on two of the layers to create a more whimsical flower. I used some foam mounting tape for dimension between a couple of the layers. I topped it with a black enamel dot. I stamped one of the leaves in black licorice. The other I used the newsprint looking stamped panel and stamp it with black licorice ink. I like the different look.
I added some loose white threading along with Scribbles die namics cut with silver foiled card stock. I combined these elements for added dimension and depth. They also add to the whimsical nature of the card. I used Blueprints 20 to die cut a sentiment strip which I stamped with Totally Happy stamp set in black licorice and added to the bottom. I finished my card with a few sequins to comply with sketch.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
