Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge

Hello and a Blessed Sunday to you from Melbourne.

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

Welcome to our Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop where we have a Sketch Challenge. For an added challenge we could add some ‘shimmer and shine’ as well.

I wanted to create a card with a soft colour palette and yet adding some shimmer. For the border at the bottom, I layered 2 strips of Designer Series Paper. The Gray from the Simply Elegant Specialty DSP tied in with the card base and balanced out with the pinks.

The flowers were stamped in Basic Gray ink and coloured with a combination of Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

Then I decided to experiment with Embossing Paste and masks. I applied the paste over a mask and then applied the Gilded Leafing over it. The paste makes it stick. I used my fingers to smoothen the Leafing out.

In this photo you can see the rough shape of the doily image which is formed by the Gilded Leafing which adds an interesting background and I was rather happy with the look.

This piece of Cardstock was layered onto another piece of Basic White Cardstock which was blended with Blushing Bride ink for a softer look.

I used part of a sentiment from the Host Better Place stamp set, cutting it down to size and layering it onto 2 extra pieces of Basic Black Cardstock to give it more stability.

I have listed the products I have used on this card at the bottom of this post. During Sale-A-Bration, which runs until 28th February, all orders over $90, will earn a free Sale-A-Bration product.
