This is the Dec/Jan sketch over at the
Michael Strong Yahoo Group
and I used it to share my first sketch card
of 2014 with you.
Here is my contribution:
For the card I used a combination of:
Club Scrap Aspen papers
Michael Strong number stamps
Tim Holtz layered stencil Rays
Tim Holtz Chemist stamp
Tim Holtz Alterations - Bigz Die- Apothecary Bottle
I used the die to cut out the bottles. They were a little
to big for the card, so I cut a bit of the bottom.
The bottles are first collored with the direct topaer technique
with Antique Linnen distress stain and distress ink
all around the outline to make green and brown bottles.
The numbers are stamped with versamark and embossed with
peeledpaind distress embossing powder and colored
with peeled paint ink.
In the background you see the chemist stamp
and rays all around him. He just had an idea
for a Happy New Year!
Have a creative day!
