Try Stampin' on Tuesday #569

Hello friends! Today at Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #569we another wonderful challenge for you: an inspirational pictures and a sketch! You can use either the sketch or the photos or both to make a card this week. I decided to use both, and to use this as my "homework" for my Level 2 Altenew Educator Certification Program class "Color Your Day." The inspirational pictures made me a little nervous as I just started back at school yesterday with teacher and staff meetings leading up to our school's first day in a few weeks. This time of year always fills me with a lot of feelings, and so I went a little rogue with the pictures. I used the bright colors from the sketches and the idea of repeating shapes (like on the carpet and on the red poster-y things) on the background of the sketch. I then had to put something sweet on this card to calm my nerves. I hope you forgive the deviation. 






Supplies used:


This card began with a previously watercolor smooshed piece of watercolor with mostly orange and yellow sparkly watercolor. I decided to not use the layering stamps that come with the stamp set, and add color myself. I stamped Altenew's Pattern Play - Hexagon Stamp Set onto this watercolor with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. Using the second largest stitched rectangular die from the Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set, and then running it through a second time to trim a little more off the top of the panel to make it shorter. Then I pulled out some pink, blue, red, and purple Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and colored in parts of the panel as well as some of the trimmed off parts of the stamped image. The whole panel and leftover bits were sprayed so that the marker moved around. After the water dried, I cut one vertical row of the hexagons and glued them randomly onto the panel to add some interest. I also kept a thin strip to use later on the other panel. After the glue dried on the panel, I ink blended around the edges with more Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink. Next, I die cut a piece of black and white patterned paper from Prima's Painted Floral 12 x 12 paper pack with the largest die from the Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set. I cut that leftover thin strip so that it mimicked the round edges in the sketch, along the lines of the stamped design. The strip was then glued to the left side of the black and white panel and trimmed on the bottom and top to be flush with the patterned paper. The colorful panel was then glued at an angle onto the black and white panel and the whole thing was set aside.

Next, I stamped both the hot fudge sundae and cupcake from Altenew's All Things Sweet stamp set onto watercolor paper with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. Again, I decided to not use the layering components of the stamp set, just to color and watercolor in the images myself. They were both colored in with a variety of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and some parts were then watercolored with either watercolor from Gansai Tambi Gem Colors watercolor set or the watercolor mixed with more of the same color of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. After everything had dried, I die cut the stamped images with Altenew's All Things Sweet die set.The sundae was glued directly onto the colored panel and the cupcake was glued with an extra layer of scrap cardstock glued behind it for dimension. After everything had dried, I glued the panels onto an A2-sized white card base.

The sentiment, also from Altenew's All Things Sweet stamp set, was stamped onto watercolor paper with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. After trimming the sentiment with my paper trimmer, I ink blended around the edges with more Nocturne VersaFine Clair, glued an extra layer of scrap cardstock behind it, and then glued it onto the black and white cardstock to mimic the sketch.

Finally, I glued some pink sequins from Catherine Pooler's Providence sequin mix and some Pale Yellow Opaque rhinestones from  The Ton Stamps. 

 

We hope you are able to join us this week on Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Thanks for reading!
