Keep on goin’ to Jeanne’s place and check out the Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge today. The challenge this week is this sketch:
When I first came up with this sketch, my idea was for a tall gate fold card. But in the course of messing up the first try, and lack of time to get much finished, I settled on a smaller card with split negative.
I stamped the background in black on white paper and then in white on black paper. I lined up where the panels needed to be, and then trimmed down both panels to match. The center element is a piece of Grunge Board that I colored with Adirondack pigment ink, and then stamped the sentiment on top. The Grunge Board was then raised on mounting tape and the ribbon ran through the ends.
