I'm playing along with the Global Design Project challenge this week, which is a sketch challenge.
When you are playing along with a sketch challenge, remember it is just a jumping off point. Your artwork doesn't have to literally be just like the sketch. As you can see, mine is a loose interpretation of the above sketch. All products Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
I was so glad the stamp set Remarkable You will be in the new annual catalog. I've really had fun using it with watercolor samples. For the scruffy looking netting behind the sentiment, I used a piece of cheesecloth. I tapped Versamark on it, then coated it with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, then heat set it. I used a skewer to hold it in place while using my heat tool on it. One more tip: if you want to give your layers a real "punch", double up on the Stampin' Dimensionals. See how the colorful layer seems to float over the base card? Stack your dimensionals.
The "thanks" is from Greetings Thinlits and I'm so sorry to see it on the retiring list! If you have browsed my blog a bit, you will see that I have really used those dies. I would grab them while they are available if you don't own them. The speckles on the background were made with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I simply gave the Wink of Stella a little squeeze and tapped it on the aforementioned skewer while holding both over my project. Voila! Perfect glittery splatters.
I'm always sad to see some of my favorites on the Stampin' Up! retiring list, (some are up to 50% off) but I am SO excited about the new catalog items available in June! Out with the old...in with the new. Quantities are limited, so order your favorites right away.
