Your Next Stamp ⎜Challenge #68 ⎜Card Video

Hello fellow cardmakers. Today I am sharing my card that I created for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #68. To play along with the biweekly sketch and/or color challenge...CLICK HERE!... Here is a look at the sketch and color combination for challenge #68.

As you can probably tell, I was inspired by the sketch this time around. I didn't use any of the colors for the challenge. I also made my card a landscape vs portrait orientation. I used the puffy clouds border die to create my own stencil. I cut the larger of the two cloud dies out of vellum. I have used this same homemade stencil on several projects, and it's a great way to stretch your dies. I ink- blended my cloudy background with Versamagic Aspen Mist Chalk Ink. This is a very pretty blue- gray shade of ink. I love using it for clouds. I then cut my background panel down with the largest of the stitched rectangle dies. I lined up some bold alphabet letter dies to personalize my project with my brothers name. I cut these letters right into my background panel. I will use them to create a camouflaged technique as if my brothers name was written in the clouds. I popped up the letters with some black craft foam. This adds dimension and also creates some shadow behind the letters to make them a bit more legible. I then cut out some layers of clouds to pop up on my card to add even more dimension and interest. I stamped my sentiments on them with Versafine Onyx black ink. The image is from the Just Plane Amazing stamp set. I stamped the plane using Memento Tuxedo black and colored it in with my Copic Markers. I used the Neutral grays to add a bit of shading. lastly I added a little red heart at the end of the bottom sentiment to finish off my card. Photos of my card, a link to my YouTube video making this card, and links to the products I used to create this card are all listed below.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you will come play along with the Your Next Stamp Challenge #68!
