Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge # 232

Hi Everyone,
Have you been as busy as me….holy moly…life just gets busier and busier!
I want to share the Stamping 411 sketch with you today and hope you’ll pop on over and play along. It’s fun….hope you do.
Here is this weeks sketch….

…and my interpretation…..
Sketches 231-232-233 007
I just love how this card came out with one little tiny stamp and a little random stamping. I tried to create a pattern with this stamp and think I succeeded. I just love the simplicity and regalness of it. I know that’s not a word…I made it up. I’m allowed!! hehe
So once I stamped this it and I must say it took little time….it took me three hours to figure out what color I dare put with it.  I finally settled on Island Indigo. Not sure why but love the results. Hope you do too.
The card base is Very Vanilla and cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Island Indigo Mat 5 3/8 x 4 1/8, Very Vanilla Mat 4 x 5 1/4, and Island Indigo again at 3 x 4 3/8 and then my image piece at 2 7/8 x 4 1/4.
I stamped the image in Black Stazon and colored in with my Island Indigo Marker. Then I added the Rhinestone Centers. By the way this stamp is from the Artistic Etchings Set.
Almost forgot I used the Vanilla Seam Binding to do my Double Bow with. I love that ribbon!!!
Thanks for stopping in. I hope you like my card today and will stop in again.

Stunning Lee! I love how pretty your card is. What a fancy little stamp. I had to pull out my catalog to see which set it came from. The island indigo and rhinestones just take it up a level!

Your card is beautiful. You did a great job on lining all those images up, the bling is fun and I can't believe that you just touched each one with a marker, It makes the whole card have that blue look, very pretty.

Patti Chesky said...

You definitely picked the right color. It just pops with Island Indigo! Gorgeous work!
