TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge - Playtime

This is MJ's sketch #15 over at TechnoStamper. Another great sketch, and yes, I've rotated my sketch again to work with this new image from the Playtime Sheet at Artistic Outpost. The image on this sheet is actually fellow DT member Gerrie Johnnic's DH when he was a boy - isn't that cool!


I used the Watercolor Distress Technique from a past TJNL issue. I wanted a soft look for the image so I used distress inks in Scattered Straw and Distressed Rose. The main image is stamped in Ranger Archival Black. I punched a hole in the top and bottom and added black grosgrain tied in a bow - to follow the sketch layout. Be sure to check out the new plates Adventure and Playtime at Artistic Outpost - on sale for a limited time!









For my 2nd card - I kept my layout rotated. I masked my frame from Artistic Outpost's Playtime sheet, stamping it in black. On this one I cut off the bows on the frame. I used eclipse tape across the bottom and side of my frame so I could stamp my flowers from Bloomin' Beautiful. I colored my flower with Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip. I restamped and colored a small portion of the flower images, and placed them on my main image with dimensionals to give it some depth. (Paper Tole Technique). I added a bit of Chocolate Chip around the frame. My image is layered on Basic Grey's Boxer designer paper, then Groovy Guava card stock.








Here's MJ's original Sketch - if you'd like to play along....

what a neat idea to make use of just the frame for the second card, very nifty! Love the combo of the flowers and the basic grey paper.

As usual, both cards are great. I was not aware that is Gerrie's dh. That IS cool! Thanks for being such a constant on my challenges Lisa.

Both of your cards are gorgeous, Lisa. And how cool is it that the baby is Gerrie's DH?
