Card Sketch Tuesday #125

Happy Tuesday! Here is sketch #125, measuring the normal A2 size. I have two examples today using the same stamp, but in a different way.

This sketch allows you to use some of your hoarded designer paper!

The main image is from Inkadinkado clear stamps. I used markers to color and huffed to reactivate the inks. The photo is a little dark, but in real life this turned out really cool. The designer paper is K&Company and is layered in dark brown card stock. The pink cs is also from K&Company. I got those gold rhinestones from Michael's and placed some of the smaller ones in the corners after using my ticket punch on the main stamped image. I got lucky matching the grosgrain ribbon to the pink card stock!

This next one uses the same stamp and then playing around with some Flower Soft. That stuff could get to be addicting. You get a lot of it in the jar and it will last a long, long time! I got one jar of lavender and one of a mixed lot of colors. The mixed colors has mostly pinks and purples and is called "Fuchia". Check out their web site if you haven't already. They do have a short video on how to use it that was filmed at CHA in 2008.

The designer paper on this one is from Hot off the press and is layered with purple card stock. I added a length of dark purple grosgrain ribbon to the left vertical panel to be just a bit different. The sympathy tag is cut with a nestabilities die and is adhered with two lavender rhinestones. The sentiment is from The Angel Company.

Have a great week!
