I'm almost speechless while writing this blog post, which isn't good when you're writing a blog post! :)
I was absolutely blown away when Eva asked me to join the CYCI Design Team. I'm so very honored to be a part of this team of amazing paper crafters and artists.
The challenge this week at canyoucaseit.com is CYCI#136 Sketch Challenge.
I love all the layers for this sketch! It was perfect for a Color Burst watercolor piece that I had done a bit ago. I just knew I had to use it! I used Lime Green, Orchid, and Fuchsia from Ken Oliver's Color Burst collection on a large piece of watercolor paper.
I cut the watercolored piece out with Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Rectangles. I stamped the sentiment from Unity's Have a Little Faith kit in white craft ink and embossed it with detail white embossing powder from Stampin' Up!
I wanted the stitching to show a bit better so I added some white gel pen and wiped off the excess to soften the white. I used a heart die from Stampin' Up!'s Snowflake Card Thinlits Die set. I colored the edge of the heart with the white gel pen and popped it up with dimensionals. I tied some white twine from Stampin' Up! and added a little bow.
For my other two layers I adhered a piece of Whisper White card stock on Kraft cardstock and then used Cucumber Crush, Elegant Eggplant, and Melon Mambo SU! markers to splatter the background. I adhered the splattered background to a card base of Thick Whisper White card stock. The last touch was adding my focal piece and I popped that up with dimensionals.
I really hope you like my creation inspired by this week's challenge. Come play along with us at canyoucaseit.com.
