Hi everyone, welcome to our Creative Prompt for November 2021. I’d love for you to join in and share your interpretation of the sketch below.
How to join in…
I’ve created a thread on my Stampers Workshop Facebook page (it is pinned to the top of the page so you can always find it). I’d like to invite anyone who wants to share their take on the challenge to do so in the comments section of that post. You don’t need your own blog, just upload a photograph of your card directly into the comments. Please upload photographs only. Do not link to other blogs or websites. Regrettably, these will be removed. My hope is these Creative Prompts will inspire and challenge us all to create. I also hope that by sharing we can comment, support and encourage each other. I do hope you’ll join me.
Here’s the Creative Prompt…
I actually found this sketch a little challenging the first time I sat down to create. With the large square in the centre, I wasn’t sure what to put there. I thought about some patterned paper. I tried a couple of placements and it just fell flat. I then saw a panel stamped with the Daisy Garden image lying on my table and realised that could look super cute! My card then came together effortlessly. So my big tip is, if something isn’t working, don’t be afraid to put it aside and start on something else. You can always return to it later. Fresh eyes often help!
To create the card, stamp the Daisy Garden image on Basic White cardstock and colour with your Stampin’ Blends. I used Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. Take a piece of Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights paper pack and cut a piece to size so that it peeks out from behind your stamped panel. You can also just cut a couple of strips and have them poke out the top and bottom so you can save paper.
For the card base take a sheet of Early Espresso cardstock and emboss the front with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. As I started to layer all the pieces together I thought some Early Espresso twine would look nice tied around the middle panel. I smooshed some Early Espresso ink onto a large clear block. I spritzed it with some water then mixed it together. Next, I added a piece of White Bakers Twine to this watery ink and dyed it. I hung it up to dry well before adding it to my card.
The final touch was to assemble the card and add a coat of Wink of Stella to the petals.
Here’s the card…
If you are inspired by this Creative Prompt please pop on over to my Facebook page and share your card in the comment thread. I’ve pinned the prompt at the top of the page so it is easy to find. I respectfully ask that you only post a picture of your card and do not link to external sites.
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! It’s such a fun sketch!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
