Inspirational Card Sketches #14


Another wonderful sketch to inspire you this Tuesday from Inspirational Card Sketches designed by the lovely Dawn! This is one of my favourite cards to date, just don't want to give it away, but it's for my Dad who's birthday is the day after mine.

I'll start with the tag... I wanted to try Tim Holtz dabber-resist technique, I used Kim Hughes fabby trees, with my copper paint and I followed the video. I over-stamped the whole image using the script stamp with distress ink, then blended a few distress ink colours over tag with my blending tool. I didn't think the painted outline of the tree was enough so dabbed some paint onto my non stick sheet and used my water brush to fill in the trunk and tree tops. The flying bird I have simply stamped with black ink directly over everything. I have used a grommet to embellish the hole. Tee Hee... that was just the tag, the rest was really very simple. Loving this sassafras papers the edging is gorgeous and lent itself to the sketch very well. I have simply cut two slots in the patterned paper to slide the tag into. The bookplate is a Sassafras chipboard, I've attached with brads and the sentiment I have stamped onto Kraft paper and embellished with a little (man) bling LOL. I have placed a few yummilicious buttons with glue dots. Click images to get a good look at the details.

Paper: Sassafras, PTI - Kraft, MM - Natural,
Stamps: CHF - Kim Hughes spring trees, script background, Studio Calico, PTI - Out on a limb,
