Hi everyone. Not only is it time for the next ATCAS Challenge (#52) ... but we're celebrating 2 years at ATCAS. Happy Birthday to us!! :) And congrats to Kylie and the team on this happy milestone ... can't believe how quickly the two years have flown by! :)
The challenge this time is picked by the wonderful and talented Karen (Serendipity Dragonfly). She has chosen ...
I think this is the first sketch challenge we've had at ATCAS. I hope you'll play along!!
Prize: 3 images
I followed the sketch fairly closely :) I had a heck of a time photographing this card ... this was the best I could get after many, many tries :)
The card front is stamped with a large snowflake background and heat embossed in "Ice" embossing powder. You can just make out all the sparkle in the photo, but it's hard to see the snowflake shapes ... so pretty in real life! :)
For the main panel, I used a snowflake stencil (cut with my Cameo), and sprayed it with my own mix (mini mister with few drops of Tempting Turquoise re-inker, few drops of Frost White paint, and then filled up with rubbing alcohol). It gives a love soft turquoise colour with a bit of shimmer. I was channeling my friend Karen (Snippets), when I designed this card, using my new stitched mat die and stitched snowflake die from Lil' Inkers (bought because I love Karen's series of cards with similar dies). I added some silver cording and a clear rhinestone to the center of the snowflake for even more sparkle. I stamped the sentiment onto a banner (second generation stamping so the colour matches the sprayed background). Fun card to make!
We have Linda L as our guest designer this month ... and she's done an amazing job with this sketch!! I hope you'll check out Linda's card, along with the rest of the talented Design Team cards ... click HERE.
As always, there's two weeks to play along, so lots of time. Hope to see you in the gallery!
