Sketch and Color Challenge #59 - Your Next Stamp

Happy Friday ! Hope everyone had a great week so far. 

I'm up on Your Next Stamp blog as a guest designer for their Color and Sketch challenge #59. It's another great color and sketch challenge this week and I hope you will join in the fun. Head down to their blog to see many awesome inspirations by the design team and guests and have a chance to win YNS gift certificate if you play along!

Today, I am sharing with you two fairy cards inspired by this week's challenge.

My first card is an interactive one which features YNS Fairytale Homes stamp set. Catch a short video clip at the bottom of this blog to see this fun card in action!

Watercolor is perfect in creating mystical looking cards like this. I started off by inking up the image onto Canson XL watercolor card stock with distress ink - tumbled glass. Then, colored in the image and create a background using distress ink watercoloring leaving an inch at the bottom uncolored.

The fairy image is stamped on similar watercolor card stock, watercolored using distress ink markers and fuzzy cut to the edge. For the interactive component, I cut a strip of acetate and taped an end to the fairy. Try it out on the background panel to determine the length of the acetate strip.

Adhere the acetate at the bottom center using a mini brad. Cover up the bottom with a strip of kraft and hot pink card stock adhered down using foam tape. The sentiments were white heat embossed on the kraft strip before adhering.
Final touches, add some glossy accents on the fairy crown and wand and clear glitter on all the pink images using Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen.  This card is done !

Here is my second card featuring the Fairy Dust and All Aboard Bunch of Happiness stamp sets. I really love how sweet this turns out. 😄

I ink blended a white card panel using MFT premium dye inks (sno cone, limeade) and used the largest of YNS stitched rectangle die to cut down the panel. Stamped the images using memento tuxedo black ink and copic color them. Also, I've die cut some fences using the YNS lamp post and fence die set. I used Neenah crest solar white 110 lbs for card panel and 80 lbs card stock for the images. Wood pattern paper for the fences.

A slit is cut at the bottom the tulip images were tucked in and glued on using tape adhesive and the center one taped down using foam squares. I added some glossy accents on them too. The sentiments were embossed using Teal color ZING embossing powder.

The fairy image is then taped using foam squares and added shine using Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen and glossy accents. I then stamped the fairy dust using distress ink color - seedless preserve and embossed it with sparkling clear embossing powder.

Finally, I adhered the fences and add some YNS enchanted garden gumdrops.

Finally, I tied a plum color embroidery floss around the fence and glued on a bow. Then, attached the front panel to a vertical top folding card base and my card is finished !

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are inspired and looking forward to see your fabulous creations!
