My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

You Are Tutley Awesome

Here is my 3rd and final card for my July class. 

The background was water colored with Journey Turbo Teal Splash.

The stamp set is FSJ Turtley Awesome. The images were stamped with the clear pigment pad and heat set with white embossing powder.

They were then all colored in using fusion reinkers and blending solution and a fine detail blender brush. It's amazing how you can color and shade just with the amount of blending solution that you use. 

The turtle was then covered with a clear glaze, and popped up for dimension. A few blue sequins were used to finish off the card.

Here is the 2nd of 3 cards for my July class. 

Easy and fast card to make. The background was dry embossed and a die cut Lace border added.

The flowers were easily stamped and colored in with matching Fusion reinkers and blending solution.

Rainbow Bubbles It's Your Day Card

I haven't had time be creative lately, BUT, I was so inspired by some of the Beautiful stamps in the Fun Stampers Journey Spring into Summer Catalog, that I just had to play. 

The background was stamped with Clear Pigment Ink and then a Blue Pan Pastel wiped over it. 

The Fish is Water Colored with Silks on Water Color Paper. Then a Glaze over it with Sparkle cuts added to the scale portion.



Here is a close up of the glazed fish with Sparkle cuts on the scales.
