Hi, everyone, thanks for joining me for this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! Frances is our hostess and since it’s the third week of the month, it’s sketch week.
I had to ponder on this one a bit—I tried to think out of the box about those three square corner elements and decided to use three colors to represent them. I started with a Stone Gray card stock base, then, on some Ranger Watercolor paper, I stamped Mini Hearts Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then I added my watercolors using Peerless Watercolors and cut the center out with Square Frames Die-namics. I cut four more copies of it from Sweet Tooth card stock, stacked them up, and inlaid them back into the opening, with the watercolored version on top.
I stamped a sentiment from LJD Together Forever with Delicata Gold pigment ink on one of the center cut outs, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, added it back into the opening, and popped the whole thing up on foam mounting tape. Using Mini Modern Blooms and Mini Modern Blooms Die-namics, I stamped up some flowers and leaves for the right upper corner element adn it was done. The colors I used are listed below.
Here you can get an idea of the dimension of the raised frame and how gorgeous that gold detail embossing powder is.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
