Sunny Challenges 85/13

Hi there Stampers!
This week at sunny Challenges and Creations it was Kris's turn to issue the challenge to us all, and what a great sketch has been provided for us to work with.
For my card I used Soft Suede, So Saffron and Whisper White. I used the bird from the Hostess Stamp Set Simply Sketched, and stamped it onto the card base using Soft Suede Classic Stampin Pad. A small Paper Doiley was cut in half and the So Saffron cardstock I ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing Folder. I wrapped a length of White Taffeta ribbon around the So Saffron and attached this to the card front. 2 1/2" Scallop Punch was used to cut out a Soft Suede backing for my 1 3/4" Circle Punch to cut out my Water Colour Paper after I had coloured the bird. The Bird I stamped using Stazon Ink, then using a combination of Stamp n Write Markers and my Aqua Painter I coloured the the bird using Crumb Cake for the body of the bird, Daffodil Delight for the area around his eyes and Old Olive for the grasses. Bermuda Bay was the colour I used for the background, and this was painted on using the Aqua Painter and picking up the ink from the lid of the Bermuda Blue Classic Stampin Pad. The Sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White and punched out with the Large Oval Punch, another ovals was punched out this time in the Soft Suede and it was just offset at the top of the Whisper White. The sentiment and the Scallop Circle were placed on Dimensionals before attaching to the card front.
Kris, Vicky and I would love to have you join us for at Sunny Challenges and Creations.  Remember each one runs for two weeks so you have plenty of time to take part. Who knows you might just be our next winner and Ray of Sunshine! Till next time, take care and happy stamping.

  2. Thanks Kris, I will convert you yet!
