Artistic Avenger


Love Y-O-U

Yep, I was at the alphabets again! After yesterday’s card, I decided to keep with the letter theme and for the latest Inkspirations Challenge I ran with the spelling idea. This week at the Inkspirations Challenge Blog you’ll find the most awesome sketch! It is great the way it is intended or the way I did it (I turned it on it’s side).

In addition to using this great sketch, I used the colours from this week’s Curtain Call Colour challenge – Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Always Artichoke.

The base is Marina Mist and the horizontal panel is Pacific Point which was run through the Big Shot with the square lattice die. Next, I added a vertical strip of Cherry Cobbler on which I tied some Cherry Cobbler seam binding, tied into a bow with a little Bitty Button for good measure. Just tucked behind that is a piece of Always Artichoke which I punched down one side with the spiral edge punch.

For the central image, I first started with the A to Z stamp and I stamped it once in each colour a little of setting of each one. I also sponged the edges with Marina Mist. Then I added letters Y-O-U cut with my Big Shot and the Simple Alphabet – this is by far my favourite Big Shot alphabet!

Lastly, I cut a Cherry Cobbler heart out using the Hearts & Brackets die and then ran it through the Big Shot again with the Love Letterpress plate. I held my breath as I wanted the small word “love” in just the right spot and it worked like a charm! Oh and to top it all off, I added a Basic Rhinestone at the end of the word “you”.

So head on over to the Inkspirations Challenge Blog and check this sketch out for yourself! Come on and join in the fun! And, let’s check out what the rest of the uber-talented design team has done with this sketch!
