Hi there, its time for a new challenge at Cowgirls Sunday stampen Challenge and this week our challenge is a sketch plus make your own background!! Thanks to the talented Alison for our fab sketch this week! I've really enjoyed making this card as I love sketch challenges and I love making backgrounds too!!
As usual there are some fab prizes on offer and this week we are sponsored by the lovely Michelle Perkett, who has some amazing digistamps so hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the goodies!
I've used this beautiful image Emilee from CJ at Cowgirl Up Designs and coloured her with promarkers and sakura stardust pens. I've made 2 background for this card, the first is directly behind Emilee and is clear embossing powder with versamark ink on black card (using a swirly stamp from Elusive Images) and then adding tiny dots of red stickles to the design. The main background was made by painting some card with pure gold ecogreen acrylic paint and once it was dry, stamping with a paisley stamp (from Elusive images) in black pigment ink. Once the ink was dry, I rubbed vaseline in patches over the design and then painted all over with black acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry, the vaseline rubs off leaving patches of the gold background showing through.
The gold swirls are cut on my cricut, inked with versamark and embossed with gold EP and dotted with red stickles. I added a red rose from Wild Orchid crafts and a butterfly from my stash and added a few more dots of stickles for the butterflies trail
