Hallo allemaal / hello everyone,
I'm so thrilled to be guest designing for My Favorite Things, and this time around i'm asked to be guesting for the weekly sketch challenge's. I was so thrilled to be asked again!
So for the people who never heard of the My Favorite Things card challenge's, every week there is a sketch challenge, a bi-weekly colour challenge and once a month there is a birthday themed challenge.
Used products: Deck the howls stamp and dies, Our story stamp, In Paris stamp, Puppy Kisses stamp, Ready, set, snow stamp (hat and tree), Friends in the forest stamp (hat), Happy Hippos stamp (hat), Lucky Dog (ball), Interactive Labels stamp, Balloon strings Background stamp, Peek a boo wheel die-namics, Cement Grey Hybrid ink, Smooth white, Black licorice cardstock and ultra fine white embossing powder.
First off i made the turning wheel. Die cut it from smooth white cardstock and then stamped the turn onto it. I cut another piece of cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 inch and made the corner in it. Then stamped all the images and die cut and fussy cut the images. I always do that so i can determine were i want my images to go.
Made two pencil lines for the floor and the floor skirting and masked it off. I stamped the background on the top piece of the card using the Cement grey hybrid ink. You can find a tutorial here on my You Tube channel, you have to skip forward until 6:48 min how i did the rest of the background.
When i decided were i wanted my images i also decided were my thought bubble would be. I die cut it and took over the shape on my wheel. My original idea was to let the dog think about a new hat, but i only had three single hats i made him think of dogs wearing the hats so i included the In Paris one as well! I then masked and stamped the images and colored them in using my Copic markers. I heat embossed the sentiment on some Black Licorice cardstock and glued it on the base. The base is finished and i glued it onto a top fold white cardbase.
Finally i could glue everything on the card using some 3-d tape. I made some small circles using a black fineliner for the thought bubble. On the ball i made a bow so it would look like a present. The ornaments in the tree are the same as on the dogs headpiece.
Have a lovely day!
