Sketch & Colour Inspired Greeting Card


Hello! Welcome to a new and the last challenge for the year at Incy Wincy Designs. This time it is a sketch and color palette challenge. The colors are very similar to last challenge's colors, so if you still have your color supplies out, might as well use it for another card or creation for this challenge.

I printed the image on white cardstock. I colored the image using Copic markers, keeping the colors close to the colour palette as seen below.

For the sketch part, I rotated the sketch and did some modification. 

For the background panel, I blended several Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet), the colors of which were inspired by the colour palette. I used a Strathmore Bristol paper. I layered a gray Recollections Dahlia paper on top of it. I die cut this using a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" rectangle die.

I die cut a light blue patterned paper using the Li'l Inkers Fringed Scalloped Rectangle die. I created this into a frame using a craft knife. I adhered a pink vellum on the back, carefully avoiding the fringed areas since I popped these fringes up. 

For the banner, I die cut a white crepe paper with a die from the Ellen Hutson Never Ending Fringe die set. I machine stitched the top with a silver thread. I trimmed a bit off these fringes to shorten it. 

For the sentiment, I heat embossed this on a gray cardstock strip using TH Distress Oxide Wilted Violet and clear embossing powder. The sentiment came as a one liner sentiment which I cut off in three parts after heat embossing it. I circle punched the plus sign and adhered it to one of the flower centers on the detailed cut background. 

I fussy cut the image leaving a small border around it. I added some Lawn Fawn Chunky glitter to the trim of the hat and the dress. I added a pompom to the tip of the hat. 

Assembling the card, I first adhered the stitched crepe fringed paper to the card panel. I next adhered the framed panel with skinny foam adhesive so it will not show through the popped-up fringe on the frame. I then adhered the image to the panel with foam adhesive. The sentiment strips were adhered to the top right corner. I added three pink gems near the sentiment strips to mimic the sketch. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you join our challenge. As we start the next year, there will be revisions on how the challenge will be conducted. Please visit the challenge blog for more details. At the same time, the DT will take a break so this challenge will run until the end of January giving you enough time to join. On behalf of the Incy Wincy DT, we all wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Have a blessed, brilliant & creative day!
