The Willow Sketchie Challenge this week is a sketch plus a red and green theme. Now, I'm done with Christmas Cards as I'm sure a lot of you are so I wanted to make a card that was red and green and nothing at all to do with Christmas. I think I've succeeded - what do you think?
I used the That Special Touch Metal Effect Mask and inked through it onto white card with Barn Door Distress Ink. I inked around the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
I stamped the Creative Expressions Plaid Stamp onto white card with Jet Black Archival Ink and cut it out using a rectangle nestie. I inked around the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink (out of the die) and cut a mat out of black card.
I stamped the wheel image from the Creative Expressions Vintage Illusion stamp set with Barn Door Distress Ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut this out using a Spellbinders Curved Rectangles die. I inked around the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink (again out of the die). I cut a faux nestie out of black card.
I stamped some cogs from the Vintage Illusion set - one in Jet Black Archival and one in Barn Door Distress Ink and embossed both of them using Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut them out and inked them up using Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I added a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Gold.
I inked up some American Seam Binding with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and Stamped the 'Illusion' text using Jet Black Archival. I frayed the edges a bit.
I assembled the card as shown and added 3 more screw brads top right.
Hope you like the card.
