I found another card challenge blog that I like. It's called the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and it is hosted on the priscillastyles blog. We were given a choice of two similar sketchs, one fancy and one simple.
I have fallen in love with watercolor pencils and my aqua brush! The image is Stampabilities Happy Hoppers "An Apple a Day". I just love these little guys! I used a little yellow chalk around the image too.
The base card is Kraft colored card stock. The red accent stripes were originally white card stock. I used Fired Brick Distress ink to color them. The flowers are Prima. I used some Pitch Black alcohol ink to color some glass microbeads for the flower center. The leaves were punched with a Martha Sewart punch. A few red acrylic blings and a couple of black brads were added for accent.
My tag was also white cardstock colored with Fired Brick. The sentiment is a Cosmo Cricket rub on. I masked it and then used Black Soot Distress Ink on a background stamp for the pattern and to ink the edges. The little apple was cut on my Cricut using the Home Accents cartridge. I tried to mimic the coloring of the other apples. Some black ribbon fiber through an eyelet finishes it off.
This card is very simple in style but I had so much fun making it.
Thanks for stopping by,
