Feb 2023 Sketch Challenge for Inkspirations Blog Shop

Enjoy the Rhythm for Glimmer & Shine

Inkspirations Blog Hop January 2023

Hello my stamping friends.

It’s time for the first blog hop with the Inkspirations Blog Hop group in 2023.  This month Angie offered up a double challenge:  1) a sketch to follow and 2) add some glimmer and shine!  I decided to use this new stamp set Enjoy the Rhythm from the Spring Mini Catalog.  My hubby is a drummer so this was a no brainer for picking up to craft with.

So I chose to follow the sketch offered but did use a Z-fold structure.  Okay, here is the offered sketch.  Followed by my card.

You can see I followed the sketch, but like I said I did create a Z-fold with the front of the card. I scored at  1 ¼ inches and folded back that section of card. Then added some silver foil to that folded back flap to add a little glimmer!

On the face of the card I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White emboss powder for the music images.  I also heat embossed the electric guitars on the inside exposed portion of the card.

I stamped the drum kit image with Memento black ink and stamped on Basic White cardstock. Then I used my Stylish Shapes Dies - the largest square one, and die-cut the image on the diagonal, making the diamond embellishment!  Then I colored the hardware and cymbals with my Soft Suede Blend marker.  I also add Wink of Stella to the cymbals to make them sparkle.

Here is the inside of the card laid open.  I lined up the three stamps here on one  clear block and then stamped with the Memento as well.

So I hope you enjoyed my project today.  Please leave me a comment down below and then use this link to hop along to the next crafter in our hop today.
