Hey everyone. Here's my take on Stuck?!Sketches January 1st sketch challenge and Scrap Our Stash's January stash challenge. For the stash challenge, the part of the book cover that inspired me was the black cat and his striped hat. You also had to use white paint or paint splatters. Using a styrofoam cup I stamped with white distress paint to create circles. I then sewed around the circles. I also made splatters with 2 different distress paints.
The pattern paper and diecuts used were from Dear Lizzy. The word hello and gold hearts were Thickers from American Crafts. The gold splatters were made using Heidi Swapp's color shine.
The flowers were made from stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. I used part of the Arianna Blooms collection. I embossed the stamped image with gold embossing powder and then colored it with distress ink. I then molded the flowers and used art glitter from The Art Institute for the centers. Love how they turned out!!! Heartfelt Creations has taken my flower making to a whole new level!!!
Below is the sketch. I rotated it 90 degrees to the right. Make sure to check out these challenge blogs. They are lots of fun and the design team designs are very inspiring. Thanks for stopping by.
