It’s time again for another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
I started by flipping the card sketch vertical. Then I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Dies on a scrap piece of a coral colored cardstock. I then used an Americana Pixelated Stencil and CTMH White Daisy Pigment Ink to create a subtle background. Then I grabbed a scrap piece of black cardstock and used clear sticky ink + clear embossing powder to make the cardstock shiny. Once that was heat set I die cut a couple ink splatters using a Tim Holtz Die. I knew I wanted those to be my outer scallops from the sketch.
After the splatters were cut, I began to struggle. What can I use for the center scallop?! I looked through my Cricut cartridges, my cut files, my stamp sets, my chipboard accents and I couldn’t find anything I wanted to use. I finally ended up deciding on a Heidi Swapp stamp & stencil combo. I used white acrylic paint to create the heart and then used my journaling pen to draw sketchy lines around the heart. This helped to cover any imperfect areas where the paint seeped under the stencil. Once that was dry I used StazOn Ink and the coordinating Heidi Swapp stamp for the sentiment. This was the first time I used this stamp set so I just used a black marker to fill in any imperfectly stamped areas. I then used Liquid Glass and traced over the sentiment to create the shiny, textured look similar to the heat embossed splatters. For final touches I added an odd number of Silver Sequins.
This sketch is great and there are so many fun options! I hope I see yours! Head over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to enter your papercrafting project!
