A Greeting

Hi Everyone, today my card is for the Outlawz sketch challenge. One I like to participate in as it's always a challenge to use the sketches.

This time I used a sentiment instead of an image, quite a change for me. I stamped it in black, but it was too stark, so stamped it with the aid of my stamping platform a few times in pink on top of the black, I think it worked?

Anyhow, this is my card.
paper - Craft Sensations paper pad.
pearls - stash
cut file circle- Birds Cards
sentiment - stamp free from magazine
 around the background edge - Sheena Douglas sparkle pens
die - Sue Wilson square pin dot 
pearls - stash
white pearl card - Crafters Companion.

Perfect take on the sketch and a pretty colour combination. Yes the over stamping on the sentiment really does work and looks great.....where would we be without the stamping platform? x

Love how you were able to alter the sentiment color via stamping over it! It turned out to be a fun and great card - even without an image ;)

What a great take on the sketch Faith! I am so loving the sketch as it is so unique. Your take is fabulous, those papers you used are beautiful and I love the just a sentiment on this card. I can't believe you stamped pink onto of black ink! it looks great! I think a navy blue ink would have look great too. Loving this blue, pink and white color combo. Hugs, Brenda

That's a really fun sketch, Faith! I love what you did with it! I think the pink worked really great over the black too. Never would have guessed there was black under there but really like the shade of pink! Great card! :o)

Gwyneth said...

Toneing the black down with pink definately works. Your card looks great.

This is very pretty. Brilliant idea to overstamp the dark with the pink. Wouldn't have thought of that probably but it did work well. Love the doily and I really like how you've done that focal point of the sketch with the tag holding the sentiment. That is a nice design detail and your card is great! TFS & Hugs
