Hello Splat

Welcome to another fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is our very own Artisan, Amy O'Neill.  Check out her sketch:


I've taken all the elements of the sketch and made a very CAS card:



It's hard to see in the photo, but I've scored double lines to represent the horizontal panel on the sketch.  The die-cut sentiment is the rectangular panel and the die-cut splat is the half-circle.  I started my card by sponging various distress inks onto a scrap of cardstock, before die-cutting it with the splat die.  I also die-cut the sentiment in black cardstock, colored it with clear Wink of Stella, inked it up with Versamark and clear-embossed it several times.  I stamped the "friend" in black ink onto the card base then adhered the die-cut pieces.



Thanks for visiting.  My team-mates have some fabulous cards using this sketch, so be sure to check them out.  I'm entering this card into Virginia's friendship card Link-Up Party as well as Card Concept, where I used the colors to make a Clean and Graphic card.



Products used:

Stamps:  Fanciful Feathers (WP9)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Twisted Citron, Worn Lipstick, Picket Raspberry, Peacock Feathers Distress Inks, Versamark
Cardstock:  White, black
Dies:  Scribbles & Splats (Tim Holtz), Simply Said Hello (Avery Elle)
Accessories:  Scoreboard, Clear EP, Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren

Oh how I wish I could sponge colors like you do. Whenever I try to do something like this it looks like a big mess! And in a not-so-strange twist, I JUST bought that same Tim Holtz Scribbles & Splats die so I hope I can do it justice like you! Fantastic take on the sketch too! :)

Wow, I looooove this colorful CAS card! At first I thought you'd sponged the splat through a stencil. Didn't know such dies were around. ;o) Have a great weekend, Karren!
