Sketchtember Challenge – Day 30 Background Technique with Masks

Can you believe it? We are at Day 30 of my Sketchtember Challenge celebrating my birthday month. I don’t think I can believe it! What a fun challenge that I got to share with you.

During the entire month of September you’ve also had the opportunity to be in the running to go in the draw to win a hamper valued at $200. Every $50 order you placed with me and every class you purchases has given you an entry in the draw. Place an order of $50 today and be in the running to win a whole lot of Stampin’ Up! products.

For this last sketch I’ve chosen the Apple Harvest Bundle. Today, is the LAST DAY you can get this bundle. The dies will not be available for purchase after the 30th of September. The Apple Blossoms dies have so many beautiful add on elements that you will want to accessorise your Apple Harvest stamp set images with.

As part of the Perfect Partners promotion there are 6 die sets that will not be available after today.

To create the checked background I first blended Parakeet Party ink through the mask with the larger squares. Then I added the mask with the smaller squares on top of the other mask and applied Bermuda Bay ink to create the pattern.

The frame was coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and the apple image with a variety of colours.

  • Apple outer – Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Color Lifter
  • Apple inner – So Saffron, Pale Papaya, Medium Light, Ivoty
  • Leaves – Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green
  • Stem – SU500 Medium, Ivory
  • Flowers – Pale Papaya

Order this bundle by shopping online or by contacting me via the details below. While the stamp set will be available to purchase the dies will be discontinued after today.

I hope you have enjoyed this month of sketches and please continue to create and share with #sketchtemberchallenge . Thank you for checking out my posts and for taking the time to comment and tell me that you love the inspiration. I share what I love in the hope that in inspires you to be creative so I love hearing feedback from you.

Looking forward to sharing World Cardmaking Day with you tomorrow.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 29 Sepia Technique

For my card on Day 29 of my Sketchtember Challenge I’ve used Water Painters for the Sepia Technique which is reminiscent of those old photographs. I really enjoyed doing this style of Watercolouring with natural tones.

I started by stamping the image in Soft Suede on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I worked in the other colours with my Water Painters, adding Early Espresso towards the centre. When water colouring, ensure you dry between colours so it doesn’t become a muddy mess.

I added a layer of Very Vanilla between the Early Espresso and Crumb Cake card base which made the spots stand out more. The sentiment just fit the calming tones of this card. I fussy cut around it so it didn’t cover too much of that pretty image.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 27 Sweetest Cherries

Hello and welcome to Day 27 of my Sketchtember Challenge. I’m creating with the Sweetest Cherries bundle which includes a stamp set and coordinating punch. The sentiments in this stamp set are bold and in a more handwritten style font which make for creating fun projects.

I created a vertical card which is not my norm as I felt the sketch was more to this style. So cut your Cardstock at 10.5 cm and score at 14.8 cm. The Gingham Cottage DSP is so versatile and I’ve been finding many uses for it with my projects of late.

The cherries were stamped in Real Red ink and then I added some extra shading with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencils. The leaves were punched from Mint Macaron Cardstockwhich I coloured with Old Olive and Coastal Cabana Watercolour Pencils to add shading and depth.

I’ve been using my Watercolour Pencils more and just love how easy it is to create shading with this colouring tool. They are at a low price point and you can get 2 assortments. I’ve got them in a cup style container right on my desk so I can easily access them any time which makes me use it even more.

Sketchtember Challenge – Day 26 Just For You

For Day 26 of my Sketchtember Challenge I’m joining in the Stampin’ Up! #CreativeChallengeSU with a bit of fussy cutting.

I’ve coloured the DSP with a mix of Watercolour Pencils and fussy cut it.

Watercolour Pencils used

  • Melon Mambo
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Real Red
  • Old Olive
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Calypso Coral
  • Daffodil Delight

Underneath I’ve stamped the Cardstock with some leaves from the Garden Grandeur stamp set in Basic Gray ink. Then I embossed the Cardstock with the Timber Embossing Folder. A fussy cut butterfly was added to resemble the sketch.
