Hello and since it's Friday, you know it's time for Friday Fun Day Challenge #29 over at Jo's Scrap Shack. I hope you'll play along with us; the rules are posted on Jo's blog, and are very easy to follow. This week we are following a sketch, and our sponsors are Bugaboo and The Paper Nest .
Here's my card using a Bugaboo digi stamp since Bugaboo is the sponsor of my Team A.
- Bugaboo Christmas Bells printed on Xpress paper, die cut with a S/B circle & colored with Copics. Used a clear Wink of Stella pen for some shine on the bells and ribbon. IRL this gives a nice shine, especially on the bells, creating a look of real metal. Used a circle scallop S/B die as a mask to shade BG0000 shading around the bells.
- SU Top Note die for the green tree Kringle & Co. design paper, highlighting the stitching with a white gel pen. The reason I purchased this die was because I can't do a decent faux stitch, and a friend pointed out the stitching lines in this die.
- card base is from a 12x12 Colorbok pad picked up at Walmart ($5.99!) and the paper has sort of a metallic shine to it. Embossed with Brenda Walton Starry Night Flourish (658753-Sizzix - 2pk set).
- the scallop trim was a snippet from this card, using the 3 Twenty Crafts Background Builders. I used the dot border from the Builders set, inked in Memento Black Tuxedo, then punched with a Fiskars scallop border. You have to look very hard to see the dots, but they are there!
Haven't decided where the sentiment will go, but I'm thinking a small one popped up in the top left corner.
Thanks for visiting today, and please be sure to check out what my team mates have done for today's sketch challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack and if you have time, play along with us. We'd love to see your interpretation of the sketch, which you will see over at Jo's.
Hugs & have a lovely Friday.
