The sketch for this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge worked perfectly for what I had in mind in using this stamp.
I decided to turn the sketch on its side to allow for the shape of the stamp, but that's allowed with our challenges---tip them, turn them, use different shapes but make sure you can still tell it's our sketch.
I decided to stamp the image twice using my Memento black ink on Whisper White. I wanted to fussy-cut out several of the tulips to give the image more of a 3-D effect and wound up cutting out the "newspaper wrap" as well. After colouring the full image as well as the cut-out portions using my Blendabilities, I used my Bone Folder to give some curve to the cut-out pieces. As well as curving the newpaper wrap, I sponged a bit of Baked Brown Sugar ink around the perimeter to add shadows to the curves. Then I tied a bow of Baked Brown Sugar Baker's Twine around the newspaper before using Dimensionals to attach the piece to the main image. I also used Dimensionals to add the cut-out tulips.
Before adhering the stamped Whisper White piece to my base of Calypso Coral and Hello Honey, I sponged around the edges using Hello Honey ink.
I think you can see the added dimension in this picture but I also took a picture at an angle to give you a better look at the 3-D effect.
The main body of my card uses Baked Brown Sugar as its base and then I've added a layer of Calypso Coral. Next I've added a piece of the beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper to the bottom portion of the card and, for the top, a piece of Naturals White embossed using the beautiful new Spring Flowers embossing folder which I lightly sponged afterwards using Hello Honey ink.
A piece of Hello Honey Stitched Satin ribbon, a scattering of embellishments, and my card was done.
I hope you'll consider joining us this week by submitting your own interpretation of this sketch to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.
