SC249 & C4C5

Hello everyone~
It's already Thursday?!? Where did the week go? Before you know it, it will be Christmas :o
I'd better making cards for Holidays but I really wanted to play the new set from Kitchen Sink Stamps! This set is called Multi Step Sunflowers and well coordinated with Multi Step Giant Sunflower. Beautiful images, don't you think?

I used the sketch from SCS Sketch challenge (SC249). I also enter the card for Crazy 4 Challenges 5 (C4C5) using the stitches. Mine is the faux stitches :) To place the stem part for the big sunflower behind the small flower, I masked the image and then stamped the stem. The embossed mat was DTPed with white ink to emphasize the words.

もう、木曜日です。今週は、どこへ行ってしまったのかという位、時間が早く流れていきます。そうこうしている内に、あっという間に、クリスマス・お正月が来てしまいそうですね。クリスマスと言えば、ホリデーカードを作り始めないといけない時期ですが、今回はどうしても、このKitchen Sink Stampsの新しいセットを使いたくなりました。これは、Multi Step Sunflowers というセットで、Multi Set Giant Sunflowerセットと、組み合わせて使うこともできます。素敵なイメージでしょう?

今回は、SCSのスケッチチャレンジのスケッチ(SC249)を使って作りました。ステッチを使ったので、今週のCrazy 4 Challenges(C4C5)にも、エントリーしています。このステッチは、手書きのフェイクです(笑)大きなヒマワリの茎部分を、花の後ろに位置づけるのに、小さいヒマワリの花をマスキングしてから、茎のスタンプを捺しています。エンボスしたパネルは、白のインクをDTPし文字が映えるようにしました。

These are the steps I did for each image:
(sunflower) 2nd - Memento cantaloupe, 1st- dandelion (1 x stamp off) and repeat, 3rd - SU really rust (1 x stamp off) and repeat, 4th - Memento rich cocoa, 5th - rich cocoa
(leave & stem) 2nd - SU old olive (1 x stamp off), 1st - SU kiwi kiss, 3rd - old olive

Stamps: Multi Step Sunflowers, Other Important People (KSS)
Paper: really rust (SU), dark chocolate, kraft (PTI), classic whtie (Flourishes), designer paper (Basic Gray)
Ink: Memento cantaloupe, dandelion, rich cocoa (Tsukineko), really rust, old olive, kiwi kiss (SU), fresh snow (PTI), white gel pen
Accessories: vintage twine, button, dew drops
Tools: border punch, piercing tool

Thank you for stopping by.
