This week over at Freshly Made Sketches, the incredible Cindy Lovell is our sketch hostess. Cindy has the most fabulous eye for design and detail. I love her cards! Of course it is no surprise that her design is perfect for lots of interpretations. It is fantastic!
I knew I wanted to use this graphic and fun stamp Dotty Angles when I saw the sketch. But what to do with it? And which shape, triangles or circles? After playing with it a bit, I thought I do a take on ombre stamping. I sponged Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Midnight Muse (retired In Color) inks onto the triangle stamp. Makes for a pretty cool effect, don’t you think? I chose the sentiment die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and cut out a few from white card stock. I used the inky sponge dauber already loaded with Bermuda Bay (from inking the stamp) to sponge color on the top layer. You could used colored card stock but this effect is a little softer. The sequins are from the Holiday Catalog (silver) and from Paper Pumpkin. The darkest one is colored with a Night of Navy Blendabilities marker to make it match.
I think you are going to have fun with this sketch. So many great ways to create with the angled panel and circle element. The team does its usual magic and you will love their work! I’ll be back Friday with a quick and easy card you are sure to like. So glad you stopped in today. Hope your day is great!
