I'm popping in to share my DT card for the current The Flower Challenge #31! It's already time for a reminder post! We're having a sketch challenge this month!
I used highlight coloring technique to represent the rectangles of the sketch in my card. As the main image I chose the beautiful floral cluster from At Grace (40-680) cling stamp set by Penny Black.
First I did heat embossing the image on a Canson Bristol Vellum panel in silver. I added watercolor wash in the background using blue and purple DI and splattered the same colors along with dark blue and white ink.
I left the stamp in the MISTI tool and stamped the image two more times again on Canson Mixed Media paper. I stamped the flowers in Broken China DI and added darker shade using Tombow brush markers. I scribbled the base part of the flower of the stamp with the markers and spritzed pearlized water on it. I repeated the process until I was happy with the result.
I stamped three more extra flowers, this time using Shaded Lilac DI first and added darker shade using Tombow brush markers. I fussy cut the flowers and set them aside.
I then cut each stamped panel in the rectangle shape shown in the sketch. I cut two more rectangle panels from some white cardstock, slightly larger than the rectangle panels I cut from the stamped panel. I inked the border of the rectangles using Blueprint Sketch DI and adhered them as a mat under the stamped rectangles. The sentiment is from Flower Teddy (30-543) set by Penny Black. I stamped it in a black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it.
I mounted the background panel with the silver heat embossed image on a white cardbase. The rectangle panels were then foam mounted on it while aligning the images. I then added the three solo flowers and some iridescent sequins to finish off the card.
That was my reminder card for our sketch challenge!
