January WRC Sketch Challenge

Greetings! Today I am sharing a card that uses the January Sketch Challenge from White Rose CraftsThe January Sketch Challenge is open from January 1st to January 25th. Limit maximum 3 entries per person. We will randomly pick one participant to receive a $15 White Rose Crafts e-gift card. Please feature something sold on the WRC store site in your project. If you're not sure if you have something... take a look in the shop... you may be surprised. https://whiterosecraftsllc.com/. Then, you can upload your project to the WRC Fan Page on Facebook HERE.
Here's my take.

I started off with the Craft Creations Die Cut Decoupage sheet called "Goldfinch in Cherry Blossom." There are so many wonderful images that you can layer or keep separate. I will be able to make several more cards out of that 1 sheet. Anyway, the square image of the goldfinch was perfect as a jumping off point for the sketch. For the other 2 squares, I used a piece of Metallic cardstock in Mountain Rose (it is so shimmery in person!) and a piece of green plaid cardstock from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper Pack. The sparkly strip uses Lawn Fawn's Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock and a piece of forest green cardstock from my stash.

My background was created directly on my white card base using Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron, and Antique Linen. I took all 4 colors and rubbed them on to my craft mat, sprayed them with water, and dipped my card base into the colors. I did this a few times, drying the ink layers each time with my heat gun before dipping it in again.
I added a piece of American Crafts ribbon, a heart from the Goldfinch decoupage sheet, and some "Bells are Ringing" Sparkle Blend.

This was a fun sketch to work with, and I hope you'll join in! Remember to add your photo to the album I linked at the top of this post. And be sure to visit the White Rose Crafts LLC shop, a/s there is still a BIG sale going on (through 1/8/2019) ! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
