I have had these projects done for a while but am finally getting a chance to get them done. Did July seem to fly by for anyone else? Okay on to the challenges...
Smeared and Smudged Forum Very Sketchy Card Challenge.
To the left are this month's sketches for each challenge.
Smeared and Smudged Forum Very Sketchy Scrapbook Challenge
I was not sure at first what I wanted to do, but ended up really liking what I came up with.
Here are my take on the sketches:
Card Sketch Deets
Main skull image - Smeared Ink Rubber Club, Morte by Rick St. Dennis
Sentiment - Stampin' Up! set called Remembering Your Birthday
Barb wire - Smeared Ink Rubber Club, Urban Decay
Green hard to see background image skulls - Smeared Ink Rubber Club, Morte by Rick St. Dennis
Word background - Stampin' Up! background stamp, Dictionary
Main image was stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with Smoky Slate Embossing Powder. I sponged and stamped background first.
I used the negative of a heart framelit over main image and sponged and inked with darker colors.
Barb wire and sentiment stamped with Basic Black ink. Skull background with Gumball Green ink. Dictionary background stamped in Perfect Plum ink.
Red marker to high light heart.
Ribbon is from unknown.
Scrapbook Sketch Deets
A 6" x 6" page on Sahara Sand and Vellum card stock.
I used the set Glorious Grunge, Stampin' Up!, to stamp background on entire page.
Heart Framelits for the cut out hearts.
Washi tape along the bottom, wood buttons, and smushed bottle caps for accessories.
Crystal Effects (of course!) and Real Red Marker also used.
Note: All card stock, inks, and accessories are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
