It's time for a new Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog!
This week we have a sketch challenge:
I've been sneaking a bit of time here and there to play with the schtuff I got from the upcoming Occasions catalog PLUS Sale-A-Bration is coming too, and as a demonstrator, I've already been able to earn FREE SCHTUFF!!! So when I saw this sketch, I knew which set would be perfect for it. Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - You're Lovely (SAB), Happy Watercolor; Paper - Sweet Sorbet DSP (SAB), Sahara Sand, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit; Ink - Basic Black, Crisp Canteloupe, Summer Starfruit; Other - Deco Label Framelits, Banners Framelits, 1-3/4" circle punch, Basic Metal buttons, Clear EP, Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, dimensionals, Signo white gel pen, Crisp Canteloupe & Summer Starfruit markers, sponge wedges.
GOJUS! (YILM)! I struggle with sketches like this that are very symmetric, but I think I managed to pull it off. I made the lettering on the label look very dimensional by using a marker of the same color to create "shadows" behind all the lettering. Once I sponged the very outside of the circle, suddently the lettering just "pops" above the surface .
Sale-A-Bration is right around the corner, so feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in having a great party for your friends learning to make cards like this!
