Hello! I'm back with a card using this week's Card Patterns sketch, but first I want to share some news. It was announced today on the Card Patterns blog that the challenge will be closing at the end of June. The Card Patterns sketches have been a source of inspiration to many of us for a long time, and it will be sad to see them go, but you will still be able to access the archives of prior sketches and design team inspiration to help jump-start your projects in the future.
I have enjoyed being a part of this wonderful team and want to thank Tracy and Michelle for all of their hard work! I hope you'll stop by and wish them well in their future endeavors, too.
Please play along with us on our last 2 sketches, including this week's layered beauty:
This is the last day to enter my giveaway for the Half Pint Heroes set! I've shown you cards this week using the rocket and car images, so today it's the submarine. I love how it turned out!
I stamped the sub onto white cardstock, colored it with Copics, and cut it out. It's popped up on the white panel, where I added three fish and a sentiment from the set.
The starfish are from WPlus9's Guiding Light--I thought they were perfect for this design. I also stamped "waves" on the background strip using a border stamp from The Craft's Meow's Retro Foundations. I added shading with a Copic marker to give the waves some depth.
