Back on Your Feet – Sigh…

Welcome back!  Chasing another Sunday deadline…

Working with the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge (#639) along with the Color Throw Down Challenge (#675) and the CAS on Friday Challenge (#222) theme.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Smoky Slate cardstock.
  • Panels: (approximately 2⅝” x 4”) Basic White cardstock.  The right panel was impressed with the Stitched Greenery Die for a bit of design texture.  The other panel was left as is.
  • Center Circle – Focal Image: (2⅞”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The image of the Turtle from the Back On Your Feet stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder.  
    • The image was water-colored with a variety of ink colors with the Fine-Tipped Water PainterTurtle Belly – Daffodil Delight and a bit of Garden Green; Shell – Garden Green with a bit of Daffodil Delight; Turtle Body – Smoky Slate with some Garden Green.
    • A Smoky Slate water-color wash was added under the Turtle and a Night of Navy water-color wash was added around the Turtle with the Broad-Tipped Water Painter.
    • The image was die-cut with one of the (2⅞”) circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set.
  • Accent Circles: Cardstock scraps – (1”) Daffodil Delight, (1⅛”) Garden Green and (1⅝”) Night of Navy.
    • The Sun Ray Burst image from the retired Circle Celebration stamp set was stamped with Smoky Slate ink on to the Daffodil Delight scrap and punched out with the retired (1”) Circle Punch.
    • The word, Sigh…, from the Back On Your Feet stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder on the Garden Green scrap and then die-cut with the (1⅛”) Layering Circles Die.
    • The sentiment, Hope things get better soon, from the same stamp set was stamped the same as above on to the Night of Navy scrap and then die-cut with the (1⅝”) circle-die.  

All of the elements were then adhered to match the sketch.  A clean and simple card with just a few layers for interest and a pop of color.
