April 2014 Challenge : Tonya Gibbs Sketch

April 2014 Challenge: Tonya Gibbs Sketch

Good Evening Bloggers! D.L. Mannex with Devon's Divine Designs here!! Announcing my very first Challenge Entry in my crafting Career, and I am so very excited! If youd like to take on this Challenge, go HERE !

It all starts with this beautiful sketch from Tonya Gibbs!

The Challenge is to use Washi Tape, Scraps, or Old Products. Sadly I dont own any Washi Tapes, but Old Products and Scraps are my best friends in the crafting world, often coming to me as hand-me-downs, yard sale finds, or clearancing items at craft stores or expos. So before I get started here is a Supply List for my version of this wonderful sketch.

~ Card Base : Ivory - Recollections
~ Mixed Pattern Cardstock (Yard Sale Discovery)
~ Paper Doily (Hand-me-Down Supplies)
~Memento Ink : Rose Bud
~Color Box Cat's Eye Inks : Pastels
~Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist: #16850 Valentine Pink
~ "Thank You" Cling Stamp
~Spotted Feathers
~Silk Ribbon Rose
~ Assorted Trimmers and Adhesives

And now, here is my version of the Sketch!!

So after digging out the scraps of Mixed Pattern Paper, I took my Westcott Paper Trimmer and eye-balled trimming them down in different sizes to match the Sketch the best I could.
Then using my Tape Runner, I adhered the trimmings to the Ivory Card Base.
Next was the Paper Doily, which I sprayed with Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist in Valentine Pink (#16850). To speed up the drying process, I used my Martha Stewart Heat Gun. Which I then Adhered over the trimmings with my Tape Runner.

Then I came across two tags in the same patterned papers ad the trimmings. I distressed them with Color Box Cat's Eye Ink in Pink Pastel, and stamped "Thank You" in Memento Ink in Rose Bud.
Using Foam Mounting Tape, I adhered the two tags together, giving the top on some lift. Then using my Hot Glue Gun, I glued the Spotted Feather between the two tags, and the Silk Ribbon Rose on the top tag.
Once again, using Foam Mounting Tape, I adhered the Tags to the Doily, giving it some lift.

Last but not least, I used my Hot Glue Gun to glue down the Rinestones in the Triangle Pattern displayed in the Sketch.

Over all I am very impressed with how much fun I had doing this. Ive never been much of a card maker but apparently all it takes is a beautiful sketch and some scraps. 

Thank you Tonya Gibbs for the Challenge!
