Another fun sketch challenge…I’m really having a great time with these. It’s my Friday "thing to do"! My goal is to use the set that I’m loving the most "that day" to make the challenge card. So, this week….it was Pun Fun! What an absolutely adorable set!!!!
One of the reasons I purchased this set was to make kid’s birthday cards, so, I thought I’d play to make an easy, quick card! I love the bright, happy colours of this card!!!
Stamps: Pun Fun
Cardstock: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Cutie Pie Designer Paper
Ink: Stazon Black, So Saffron, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Markers: Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Aquapainter with ink from ink pad lid, Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Slot Punch (for putting ribbon through fold of card), Crystal Effects
The most fun part of this card was to use Crystal Effects to make the bird’s belly 3D. I love how it pops!
Card Details: I started with the patterned paper for this card…I knew I wanted something with fun, vibrant colours so I decided the Cutie Pie Designer Paper was perfect! The colours that match this paper are "Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Rose Red and So Saffron"….knowing this made it easy to decide on the colours for cardstock and colouring. I used Rose Red as the card backing (5.5 x 8.5). I layered a piece of 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 Polka Dot paper. I love how the polka dot works with the strips of the ribbon! I stamped the Bird in Black Stazon and coloured the Bashful Blue and So Saffron with my Aquapainter and ink from the lid of my pad. I then coloured his birthday hat with my Rose Red and Certainly Celery markers. (White CS size: 2 x 2 1/2 Bashful Blue CS 2 1/4 x 2 3/4) I punched the fold of the card using the slot punch (see this post-card 2) and thread my ribbon through. I added a "blob" of Crystal Effects to his belly and let dry for a few hours!
This is the sketch I followed:
