It’s my week as hostess for the Card Sketch over at Splitcoaststampers! I opted for a really simple sketch this week. Check this out…
MISTI tool for that one!!!) and colouring one panel and leaving one panel darker with a lighter inked image; known as the Split Negative technique. Sadly the deep dark purple cardstock I used doesn't photograph well so it looks more black than purple... sigh!
And so with the sketch, this is one of the cards I created (and my favourite of the two):
Lilac Time” and “Good Thinking: Renewal” by Power Poppy. Then I had all the leftovers to create an “yang” card…
Which one do you like the best?
Another fun thing happening today is Power Poppy is revealing their newest digital stamp release today! Check out the Power Poppy Blog today (after 8am CST) for the Instant Gardners Digital Stamp Release Team to reveal today’s new stamp set and accompanying sentiments. It’s a beaut!
Typically on Wednesday, I also have another fun challenge sneak peek or a card for our StampNation weekly Wednesday challenge but this week is special. We’re preparing for our Virtual Retreat which begins THIS Sunday… April 19th instead!
But for those of you up for an easy challenge, I have my “Let’s Talk Sketches” episode #4 up and I’m giving away some stamps as a prize to one random lucky participant if you participate this week. It’s a pretty easy sketch so I know it won’t take too long to create something for it. There’s already tons of great inspiration posted by SN members. Good luck to all those enter!
Don’t forget… I have a GIVEAWAY coming up this weekend! You’re not gunna want to miss it!!! Stay tuned this weekend for details on how to WIN!
Have a great Hump Day everyone!
