It's Wednesday, which means it is time for a "What If? Wednesday Sketch". You have two weeks to enter your card using the sketch posted on the Repeat Impressions blog...The House That Stamps Built. All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate. I hope you'll play along with us.
This week the sketch looks like this:
If you've followed my blog this summer, you know I've been having a lot of fun playing around with the hilarious froggies from Repeat Impressions called "Underpants Frogs" (7120-L). Well, let's just say that this summer I'm not on top of my game when it comes to details and I just realized this week that I had a Repeat Impressions sentiment to go with this image called "May the light..." (7007-J). So, I hope you will understand I just had to ink it up.
Letting the sketch be my guide (though I did flip it), I cut a panel from a Nestabilities die from Georgia Pacific cardstock. I sponged this panel with Adirondack Willow dye ink. I stamped the sentiment "May the light..." (7007-J) with Versafine Onyx Black. I wanted the sentiment to take the center stage on this card.
Then I created the larger panel of the card with patterned paper from Colorbok, and framed it with white and green cardstock. I cut the triangle/flag-like shapes with a Nestabilities die using green cardstock. I also cut the spiral using a Memory Box die, also with green cardstock. I adhered a black and white dotted ribbon and bow to the card, and placed three adhesive pearls onto the ribbon.
And, for the finishing touches to the card, I added those three frogs...you know the ones, "Underpants Frogs" (7120-L) to the card with pop-dots. To prepare them, I stamped them onto X-Press It cardstock, colored them with Copic markers, and cut around them with my Cutterbee scissors.
