Hi Everyone! I’m back today with a project I made using a sketch as a jumpstart. I’ve spoken in a previous post about how I love to use sketches as a starting point, especially if I have a new stamp set that I want to try.
For today’s project, I’m using Avery Elle’s Tea Time stamp set and this sketch to get me started.
Since I’m keeping my design clean and simple, I wanted to create some tone on tone texture in the background. I ran a white card panel through my Gemini Jr. using the embossing folder that came with it. I thought the flourish pattern went really well with the tea time theme.
Inspired by beautiful blue tea sets, I heat embossed one of the tea cups from the stamp set using Delicata Sapphire Blue ink along with clear embossing powder and trimmed it out.
I colored and fussy cut some of the flowers out using my Zig Brush Markers. The flowers were a combination of Yellow and Lemon Yellow and the leaves were a combination of Pale Green and Emerald Green.
I assembled all my components on the front of the embossed panel and popped it up on a white notecard with foam tape. Here’s a side by side look at the sketch with the finished card.
I use sketches a lot to help me out with my projects. I have a post HERE showing how I organize these helpful drawings if you’re interested.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
