I'm participating in the LAST challenge over at the Paper Smooches Sparks blog.
It's a Designer Draft Challenge using the following sketch:
So, let me just start by saying that I'm never really sure how far you can "stray" from the sketch. I kept it fairly close to this..I think.
I've combined two different stamp sets for this card : Get Outta Town and Summer Lovin. These two sets go together SO well!!!
To start, I picked my images and coloured them with Spectrum Noir coloured pencils on watercolour cardstock, then fussy cut them out. (Check out Julia Altermann's Blog and YouTube channel for colouring tips and just fab card designs!!).
Then I planned my layout. I die cut four Frame 2 dies and figured out my placement.
I traced lightly around each frame. I then masked around the inner portions of each frame and blended Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to make a nice blue background for each image.
I erased all my pencil marks and started to assemble. I used Smoke Ink from Simon Says Stamp to stamp my sentiment and some additional small images. I adhered my frames using some Tombow Mono glue and my images with foam adhesive.
