Card Sketch #95 - Delph Blue

Hi all - happy Wednesday! Here is sketch #95 - Delph blue, measuring the normal A2 size. As you can see I was in a blue mood! =) Just kidding - I just got a set of the versamagic dew drops and in the set was this wonderful Night Sky Blue chalk ink! I knew I had to do something with it - just a gorgeous color!
The ornament is stamped off once to create the back ground panel in a softer color. The main diamond is embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a bit of shine! Both panels are sponged around the edges and inked direct to paper. This gave them a more defined edge to go with the softer sponged look. Clear as mud?

I actually got out the old Marvy square punches to create the diamond. I still have not invested in the square nestabilities as of yet. So, had to resort to the old punches - I so need to get out the foil and wax paper, these punches are sadly neglected and in need of tuning up! The navy blue grosgrain ribbon was added to the left side to finish things off.

Have a fantastic week!
