Welcome! I'm here with a card for the latest Freshly Made Sketch challenge, where our hostess this week is Judy Rozema. And I have to say, I really like the card I made (and I don't say that often!)
As soon as I saw Judy's sketch I thought I would do traditional colour blocking with cardstock or patterned paper, but ended up using masking and ink-blending and stencils to create my colour-blocked panels. I used part of a PTI die to create the mask for the blocks and then I blended distress inks in a rainbow order. Once that was finished and before removing the mask, I added the bokeh with stencils and white pigment ink.
I then removed the stencil and added a clean white cardstock die-cut. The eucalyptus leaves were stacked three high and added with liquid glue and I finished with a white-embossed sentiment on black.
I liked the card so much I decided after almost three years to make a video showing how I created it (partly in case I forget down track!). If you want to watch it you can go here or watch it below.
