Sketch Card 3 of 3- Everything Elenore collage technique

 For the third Sketch Card We again used the mask/stencil I mentioned in my previous post only this time we made our square of color on Designer Series Paper, we then stamped additional Images including having our element of a banner replaced by an image of a label from our stamp set Everything Elenore.  The center piece is just a vellum circle punched out and sponged layered over stamped images again from Everything Elenore and punched with circle scallop.  A glue dot was used on the bird to hold the vellum it is barely noticeable since the bird is so dark.  There are a whole lot of pearls around our scallop and two more on the label stamp.  This was a super fun card for the ladies with lots of ink to the paper. 

Here is a peek at the inside- all of the words on this card are from the Crazy About You Stamp Set all Images from Every Thing Elenore and the inks are Mossy Meadow and Rose Red.  Do you love it?  Leave me a comment.  Do you need somewhere to purchase your stamps paper and Ink?  Here you go I'd love to earn your business!

Sketch Card Two-Watermellon Wonder Medallion Flower

 Well it sure has taken me a long time to get this second post up!  I have been so busy with Hostess Club, swaps for convention and going to convention I just haven't gotten to blogging!  But I'm here now! 

   This card we used a reverse mask or you could call it a stencil.  Each person got a 4 x 5.25 sheet of black cardstock that I cut a square out of centering it ideally.  I used black so that the stencil/mask would stay looking clean even when well inked.  They now can reuse this cardstock if they want to repeat this technique.
   Just line up the black over the vanilla layer and sponge in through the square opening.  Lift away the black card stock and there you go a faux layer.  We then embossed the square panel with the Honeycomb Embossing folder. cut our Banner piece which was 4 x 1 with the triple banner punch and stamped the medallion flower tone on tone and punched out with the coordinating punch.  A couple of pearls a sentiment and some sponging round out an easy but elegant two tone card.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card-I stamped a greeting from the Four for you stamp set.

Bohemian Butterfly Card Sketch Class

 Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon take center Stage on this elegant card.  This card was one of three we made at my June Sketch class.  We made a matching envelope as well for this card from the Delightful Dijon Envelope Paper.  and stamped that with the flower from this "You've Got This" stamp set.  The inking tone on tone really adds richness here.
