Welcome! I'm very excited - it's my official start with the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team today and this is the first of two samples to show you using the wonderful sketch by Arlana Patten. I have followed Arlana's sketches on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog for some time and now I'm so proud to say I'm part of that team!
This week Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is proud to sponsor this challenge.
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to offer the winner of this challenge 5 digital stamps or digital paper sets of their choice. So you'll have to play along with us this week by making a card following the above sketch and linking it to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.
Robyn's Fetish is called "Cabin in the Woods " and I just love it. It reminds me of the log cabin cottage on Higgins Lake that my family visited in the summers when I was very young. Lots of happy memories there and that's what I thought of as I used this image with the sketch this week.
Here I've used Stampin Up cardstock in Crumb Cake, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi. The woodgrain effect was achieved using Papertrey Ink's woodgrain embossing plate to get the "grain" and to enhance it I rubbed Soft Suede ink and then Tim Holtz' "Tea Dye" distress ink over it for the rich color. The image was colored using Copic markers. I colored two images and with the second one I cut out the bushes to bring them into the forefront of my image panel for more depth and dimension. The Wasabi panel was embossed using a hounds tooth check embossing folder. The buttons are also from Papertrey and with the raffia floss through them look really rustic and fitting with the feel of the card.
Now on to the next sample this week using Robyn's Fetish' "Frosty da Snowman" digi stamp...
Hope you've enjoyed these samples showing off Robyn's Fetish images and the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch # 74. Please join us in the challenge - you might just win one of the digi stamps I've showcased here!
Thanks for stopping by!
