Welcome back to As You See It Challenges for 2022! This is our first challenge of the new year and I was excited to use some new products for this sketch challenge created by team member LeAnne. Playing some more with the Symbols of Fortune Suite, my favourite from the new 2022 Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue. 

Here's the sketch for the challenge:

challenge #266

What a great sketch to work from! The circle element can be any shape! Here's a closer look at how mine turned out:

  • On my Basic White Thick card base, I added a layer of Evening Evergreen topped by two diagonal cuts of the Symbols of Fortune Specialty Designer Series Paper of two different patterns. So many beauties to choose from!!
  • I inked the flowering shrub image from the Crane of Fortune stamp set in Calypso Coral. Using a Qtip, I removed the ink from the leaf areas and used the Evening Evergreen Stampin' Write Marker to add colour to those areas. I "huffed" on the stamp to remoisten the ink and stamped the image on Basic White cardstock, then die cut it using the Layering Circles die that best fit the image. 
  • I used a Blending Brush to add some Soft Succulent ink blended around the edges, then ran the edges in Versamark ink and dipped them in Gold Embossing Powder. Using a brush to clear off any excess except for the rim, I heat set it, the adhered the circle element right to the card front.
  • The sentiment, also from the Crane of Fortune stamp set, was embossed in White on Soft Succulent card stock and glued to the card front as shown.
  • I fussy cut a crane from one of the designs of the Symbols of Fortune Specialty Designer Series Paper and added it using dimensionals to the circle element, over the flowering shrub. I die cut some foliage using the Good Fortune dies and used Glue Dots to attach them to the front of the crane.
  • The last step is to add some Polished Dots in both colours to the project.

  1. This set didn't really appeal to me at first glance Heather but your card is just stunning - I might have to take a second look! Such a wonderful way to showcase this suite!
