There were four sketch challenges in celebration of the new magazine Card Ideas for Paper Crafters by Paper Crafts over at Moxie Fab World. I would have loved to have played all four of them, but I had to pick one because that's all I had time for :) I went with the vertical sketch challenge because this is one of the sketches I had an idea for when the call for this magazine was out, but I never got around to it. Here is what the sketch looks like:
The first thing that popped in my head when I saw this sketch several months ago was icicles! I wasn't sure how I was going to put that idea onto paper until I looked at the products I won from a recent Paper Crafts Color Inspiration challenge. Here is what I created:
As soon as I saw the sentiment "Baby it's cold outside", the song automatically popped into my head! I went with a CAS card with minimal layers. I first stamped the Vintage Music background stamp by Market Street Stamps on the card base and then stamped random snowflakes in the same color on a white piece and adhered that to the card base. The icicles were the fun part! To make them, I took a piece of acetate and drew an icicle design using crystal effects. Then I covered the design with two colors of minty green glitter and let it dry. Then I just cut out the icicle shape and stuck it over the top edge of the snowflake section using glue dots. Final touches were a stamped sentiment and some inking on the card edges. Here is a close up of the sparkly icicles:
