First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for a very warm and kind welcome of my first crafting video that I made. It was a quite a lot of work to learn how to edit it and I am SO pleased that you liked it. There are more videos coming soon. It just have been such a busy weeks lately that I hadn't have time to edit any or even craft.
But I did have time to make this card inspired by the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and the theme from Time Out Challenge:
|This is my entry to the CAS(E) this Sketch #112 and to|
the Time Out Challenge #25.
This card got Honourable Mention at CTS.
When I saw the latest sketch at the CAS(E) this Sketch I immediately thought of design paper to be used at the bottom of the card. I don't know why, since I hardly ever use design papers in my cards. Then when I saw the Rock around the Clock -theme at the Time Out, I remembered that one of the stamps on the Label Love stamp set says U Rock! And I got this idea of a brick wall! LOL! I am in a need of a masculine thank you card, so this idea was very handy for me.
I started with masking off the bottom portion of a card and inked up the upper part of the card with Black Soot and Pumice Stone Distress Inks. I tried to be loose and achieve kind of an uneven look. Then I stamped first, second and third generation stamping with Black Soot DI with U Rock from Label Love by Altenew and created this brick wall illusion. This time I went for the distress look in purpose. For the "sentiment" I used Versafine Satin Red. At the bottom of a card I wanted to add some fun and drew a whole with black marker and eyes that looked at us in the whole. This idea comes from Mauri Kunnas' children books, my girls love them I read these a lot. At least my Finnish speaking friends will recognize these eyes for sure but I believe some of his books are translated into English too. After the brick wall was done, I added to here and there very very loosely Black Soot and Pumice stone DI with my ink pending tool to get the scuffed and worn-out look. Then I dry embossed the thanks sentiment from Wplus9 and added a same diecut on top of it. I did this because I really like the look of inlaid die cutting but I don't like the puzzle work that it involves and this die cut has a lot little tiny parts. So by embossing it first and then adhering the die cut afterwords, I think I was able to achieve quite similar look with no puzzle work. For the finishing touch I added a few star confetti from Hobbycraft and clear Wink of Stella onto the sentiment.
