I’m on a roll! The mojo seems to be working with me this week. It helps receiving new stamps in the mail — my new Paper Pretties arrived on Monday. Finally today, I inked up the new Swing on By Sophia. I just love this image! Since Paper Pretties is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches this week, I decided to use Sophia for this week’s challenge. This week’s challenge is to make a diagonal double pocket card. This also does double duty for the Paper Pretties challenge of summer.
This was a fun card to make. I really like this fold and can see making more of them. Now, due to the size of Sophia, I decided to only make one tag. Sophia is colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced with the green polka dot designer paper. She’s cut out with the largest Labels 11 nestie. Recently, Pam “The Stamping Addict” shared how she uses stipple brushes instead of sponging inside her Nesties. I picked up a few stipple brushes at Michaels over the weekend and really love this effect. Using Memento Summer Sky and a post-it cut with a wave, I added in a sky. Then using Memento Pear Tart and New Sprout, I added the grass. This is a great way to sub ink for an airbrush system when that isn’t in your budget! 🙂
For the tag, I cut out Select White with the largest label again. Then, using my Fiskars Fingertip Detail Knife (a great use of $5), I cut around the outside of the Nestie on Simply Chartreuse to create a larger Nestie. Some May Arts ribbon I’ve had for years and a fabric brad I’ve also had for years finished off the tag. Really cute!
