Just Gellin'

Today's Free 4 All Challenge F4A11 on SCS was called Just Gellin' - obviously we were to use gel pens on our card. I created the background for this card by stamping Bella Toile in Ruby Red on Ruby Red cardstock first. Then I used my Big Shot to cut out Scribbles & Swirls Sizzlet on a piece of scrap cardstock, and used that as a stencil with my with gel pen on top of the stamped image. The main image & sentiment are Upsy Daisy. I inked the stamp with perfect plum, then sponged Ruby Red ink on the top of the image. The main image is stamped on Barely Banana cs, and the background is streaked with Summer Sun and Perfect Plum ink using sponges. The purple ribbon going across the image isn't ribbon at all, but actually a 1/2" strip of Perfect Plum cs with "stitches" drawn on with my white gel pen. TFL!

Guitar Dude on Faux Metal

I made this card for today's sketch challenge on It literally came together in 5 minutes because I had the main image laying in a scrap pile! I created the faux metal background a few days ago using the acrylic distress technique...this is silver shimmer paint on Basic Black cs. The guitar dude is the Just Guitar stamp from Stampin' Up!, stamped first with black Staz-On, then Versamark on top using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images, then embossed with black embossing powder. I used scraps of the faux metal paper to punch out photo corners. The red layer is from the Jackpot designer series paper pack, and the orange layer is from the Cast-a-Spell designer series paper pack. Everything is layered on Basic Black, and the card base is Basic Gray. All supplies are Stampin' Up! TFL!
