Since I saw this week's sketch at Case This Sketch, I've been thinking of how to create a card for it. I was kind of stumped to tell the truth. After viewing all of the lovely submissions on the blog to help with inspiration, I finally came up with an idea. This week's color challenge at CanYouCaseIt? helped too.
Here's what I came up with to play along with both challenges.
This is one of my very old wooden stamps from Rubber Stampede. I've had it about a billion years. I first stamped it in the center of the right side of the white panel in Memento tuxedo black ink. I made a mask from post-it notes and stamped it again at the top and bottom changing the angle each time.
After stamping, I colored the images with Copics in greens and yellows and used B01 and B02 for the space around the images.
I trimmed the panel to 3.5 inches and glued it over the strip of patterned paper onto the card base. I added a few enamel dots in the challenge colors for final embellishment.
We went to a friends for a summer dinner party on Saturday. I'll send this as their "thank you" card. Here's the inside:
