Freshly Made Sketches #248 - Clean Underwear & A Dirty Martini
Hello everyone. Me again! Two posts in one day - I know, crazy!! But I wanted to share with you a card I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #248. You have until 2pm tomorrow to upload a card so maybe, if I post it today, someone will see it and try to make something too!
Here is the sketch to work with -
While I was making my "Jake & Chloe Lemonade Scene", I was going through my stash of Clear & Simple Stamps and came across this older set called "Martini Darling" and then, in another box, I came across this phrase from Rubbernecker Stamps called "Dirty Martini". I knew I would have to use these two sets together soon and put them away for that day.
Well, today was that day. LOL Unfortunately the Martini Darling set has been retired by Clear & Simple but the phrase by Rubbernecker is available but in a different format - HERE.
I started with a top folding A2 white cardstock base. I adhered a piece of decorative paper from Urban Traveler by Simple Stories. I wanted a darker , edgier paper to reflect a "martini" mood in a dimly lit bar.
Then I cut a piece of white cardstock, 4" x 5 1/4", and stamped "Splatter It" by Unity Stamp Co. with an "Ice" Color Pop Ink by Clearsnap. (Both the stamp and the ink are designed by Susan K. Weckesser, Inc. and I am in love with these inks lately). This "Splatter It" is also a GREAT stamp to use when you want a little something thing in the background without having to go all crazy.
Next I stamped the two ladies from the "Martini Darling" set, cut them with my Scan N Cut, and then colored them in with Copic markers. I paper pierced the pants on one and the dress on the other using other decorative paper in my stash.
I adhered one to the left side of the cardstock over the "Splatter It" image. Then I adhered the other image so it overlapped the first just a bit. I DID NOT glue down the purse because I wanted to be able to lift it for the phrase.
I stamped the phrase and adhered it under the image. Where the purse is, it is not glued gown. You can understand the phrase but can also lift the purse to make sure you are correct. LOL
I then cut a piece of white fun foam and adhered it to the cardstock with the images. Then I adhered both to the card front. DONE!
I hope you've enjoyed this fun card. I hope you can find some time to make a card for the current Freshly Made Sketch Challenge. Just click HERE to be taken to the post! Until next time -
