Well, here it is September 1st- a brand new design team and a brand new set of challenges on the Bombshell Stamps' forum. Kathi, our sketch genius, has come up with a wonderfully fun sketch for us this month. Check it out:
I don't make many long cards so this one was fun to make. Here's my take on Kathi's sketch:
I used Stampin' Up's textured Razzleberry cardstock for the base of the card. The card measures 4-1/4 x 8-1/2" so it will fit in a regular legal-sized envelope. The patterned paper is unknown. It's some I picked up in a "yard sale" at my local stamp store. Instead of making just one panel for the image, I made 3. Two are cut from SU's silver metallic cardstock and embossed in the Cuttlebug using the Diamond Plate embossing folder. The center panel is GP110 white cardstock. The motorcycle image, from Bombshell's Harley Bikes stamp set, is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using Copic Markers. The "Girl's Ruin" banner is from Bombshell's Girl's Ruin stamp set. I thought it went well with the motorcycle, afterall, a motorcycle CAN be a girl's ruin...you wouldn't believe the cost of accessories for a bike! :D The skull image is from Bombshell's Speed Shop Hot Rod stamp set and is punched out using a small oval punch, layered on a scalloped oval of textured Razzleberry CS, which is layered onto a large oval of GP110 white. All punches are from Stampin' Up. The scrap of black and white dotted ribbon and the lace are from the Offray Ribbon Outlet.
I hope that you'll play along with us on this sketch challenge, as well as the other challenges on the Bombshell Stamps' forum. We can't wait to see what you come up with!!
