Sorry You’re Under the Weather–C4C #232


Hi, everyone! It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! Since this is the third week of the month it’s sketch time, too! Joanne had a great sketch for us—I REALLY had fun with this one.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then adhered a partial panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on which I stamped the new Bokeh Builder set in Cotton Candy ink, Sour Apple ink, and Orange Fizz ink. I said it before and I’ll say it again—Bokeh Builder is to play with! I can’t wait to try other color combos.

Then I cut a piece of Grout Gray card stock with Oval STAX Die-namics, dry embossed with Raindrops Stencil and popped it up on foam. I built a Layered Umbrella Die-namics using Steel Gray card stock, Black Licorice card stock, Cotton Candy card stock, Sour Apple card stock, and Orange Fizz card stock, shaped the canopy and popped it up on foam. The sentiment, from Blue Skies Ahead, was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink, embellished with a small Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics flag, and popped up on foam, as well. Following the sketch, some black enamel dots finished it off.

Here’s a close up of my stencil-embossed raindrops—love how they add a subtle texture for a background.


A sentiment from Get Well Wishes was stamped on the inside with Steel Gray ink.


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our fabulous guest designer for March, Jeanne Streiff.
