Sketch Inspired Greeting Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. We are halfway through the month of June meaning you only have at least 14 days before the latest Incy Wincy Challenge ends. I hope you will find time to join the challenge. We have three themes for this month's challenge, Floral-Color Palette-Sketch. Below are the colors and the sketch for this challenge.


For today's card, I am featuring one of the two sponsors for this month's challenge, Mirtillamente. To see the first card I created for this month's challenge using the other sponsor, Alex Syberia Design, please visit the blog post, Two For One: Die Cut and Emboss with a Metal Die.

I printed the image on watercolor paper. I color the images using Karin markers. I followed the colors from the challenge color palette, although the blue might look lighter than the original color palette due to the Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust I applied over the watercolor. With Karin markers, I usually apply the pigment to a palette then pick it up with a brush. I feel I have more control doing this compared to applying the color from the marker to the paper. I only do this if I need a bolder color on a part of the image just like what I did on the stigmas of the yellow lily.

For the panel, I am using a left over patterned paper panel I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design Hello 6x6 patterned paper. I trimmed three strips of patterned papers from the same patterned paper pack. I trimmed these strips into triangular strips using a paper trimmer. I mixed the triangular strips and used a tape to keep the triangular strips together, creating a wider triangular element. I adhered these to the panel, following the challenge sketch.

I wrapped a sheer ribbon around the panel. I also wrapped a white embroidery floss around the panel.

Back on the watercolored panel, I die cut this using one of the dies in the Waffle Flower Crafts A7 Layers dies. I rounded the edges using a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I lightly inked the edges with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet. 

The digital image came with a sentiment. I added more words to expand the sentiment using a Martha Stewart Letter Rubber Stamp. I adhered this to the center of the panel.

I added shimmer to the moon and to the dots using the Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust.

Thank you for viewing my blog. I hope you have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
