The Outlawz Sketch Challenge 8-26

The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge is up and running.  The sponsor for this  month has been My Little Whimsical World.  Since I didn't have many of their stamps, I have been using other designer's stamps.  For this card, I used Deedee's Digis precolored dog from Fall Bull Dog.

I used Stampin' Up cardstock for the base and Recollections for the other cardstock.  I embossed the large square background with a Die'Sire embossing folder.  I used Tea Dye Distress Ink over the embossed piece.  The image is the pre-colored bulldog from Deedee's Images.  Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The die cuts are from Basic Grey and Bo Bunny fall sets.  I put Crackle Accents over the die cuts.  It is similar to Glossy accents, but instead of just making a glossy finish, it does a crackle finish.  It's hard to see on the large picture, so I added just the smaller picture of the leaf t show it.

Challenges Entered: AG Four Legged Friends Use a Digi One for the Boys No Printed Paper No Patterned Paper Square For the Boys Pets/Animals Things with Wings

Playing with My Minc

I just got the newest holiday collection for the Minc from HSN.  I thought I would try it right away.  I used the green foil on the background and gold glitter on the  image and sentiment.  It depends on which way you hold the card as to how the green shows up.  If you hold it looking straight on, the green is barely visible.  But if you hold it at an angle, the green on the background shows up.  Yet another way, it looks like the white on the background is green.

Bountiful Harvest

Wheee, I got a new toy to play with my scraping.  It's called Ken Oliver's Color Burst.  It's a pigment ink powder that you use with watercolor paper and water.  I have been playing with it for a couple hours and made this card using it.   The background is made using Burnt Orange.

Once the background was dry, I embossed it with Die'sire Lattice embossing folder (also new) and mounted it on a 5 1/2 inch square card base I made using a piece of Recollections Kraft cardstock.  I added the big bow because I got that corner a little darker than I wanted it to be.  The ribbons were in my stash and I have no idea where they came from.  The image is from Deedee's Digis Harvest Hellos and was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I added some Stickles and Wink of Stella glitter pen to the image to make it sparkle.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
