Here is a card for 2 challenges: Crafty Creations #106 - Thank You Card and Sketch and Stash Challenge #55.
The stash for the Sketch and Stash Challenge is the gorgeous Poppy rubber stamp from Elusive Images which I have not used for absolutely ages. The "Thank You" sentiment is from them too.The harlequin paper has been languishing in my stash draw for about 5 years so I am pleased that it has seen the light of day.
The card is A5 in size and dark green. Layered onto this was some green harlequin paper. The light green square was shaped with Martha Stewart PATP punches. The slider was cut from silver mirror card using a Shapability and my cuttle bug. The was also used to cut out the sentiment, The sentiment backing mat and the mat for the main image.
The main image was stamped with blue ink and coloured in with Promarkers. The image was stamped 3 times and the flowers cut out so that depth could be built into the card by decoupaging them.
The sentiment was tinted around the edge whilst it was still in the Nestability die to leave the outer edge uncoloured.
All the items were added to the card with either D-S tape, foam pads or Pinflair glue.
