Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Last week was my "off" shift from work, so I spent the majority of my days doing a LOT of that. Today I am sharing another card that I made for the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #123. This week we have a sketch challenge to inspire you. Our challenges run for two weeks, thereby giving you more time to create, so I have designed a second card to share with you this week that was still inspired by the same image seen below:
Here is the dreamy scene I created inspired by this week's sketch:
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I used a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of scrap paper featuring a cloudy sky pattern for the background. I cut three rectangle strips of white cardstock for the three panels in the sketch. I layered a pink strip of cardstock along the bottom and stamped "Bonjour" in pink ink in the lower right corner. I wrapped a piece of linen thread around the card. I stamped some of the images from the Newton Dreams of Paris stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and used the coordinating Newton Dreams of Paris dies to cut them out. I adhered the various images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
