Saturdays are also the day for the Stamping 411 Sketch. I changed it up just a little bit....I moved where the embellishments should go. Sorry...couldn't resist!!!
Here is my project for the week:
The patterned paper comes from the Candy Lane designer series paper collection (retiring). I sponged the edges with Pink Pirouette ink.
The vertical strip is a 4" x 1 1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock. I added a length of the Organza ribbon down the center.
The focal image is stamped on Old Olive cardstock. The grass comes from Inspired By Nature. This stamp is currently on the dormant list (not shown in the current catalog)....so here's the info if you would like to purchase it (item# 111656 for $23.95). The grass is stamped in Old Olive ink. I also sponged the edges of the Old Olive cardstock with Old Olive ink.
The butterflies come from Flight of the Butterfly. I stamped the large butterfly with Pink Pirouette ink and overstamped it with Rose Red ink. I carefully cut out the butterfly and adhered it to the focal image using a dimensional.
The little butterfly is stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Rose Red ink. This butterfly is also cut out and adhered with a dimensional.
The focal image is matted on a 1/8" larger piece of Whisper White cardstock.
The three Rose Red brads balance the focal image nicely.
The sentiment (from Really Retro) is stamped on Pink Pirouette using Rose Red ink. I punched it out with my Word Window punch.
I decorated the right side of the sentiment with a flower punched from Rose Red cardstock using the Trio Flower Punch. I removed the rhinestone from a Clear Rhinestone brad and adhered to the center of the flower using a mini glue dot.
This sketch has so much potential for so many different kinds of stamp sets.
I hope you join us this week by making a card using the sketch. Make sure you use Mr. Linky on the Stamping 411 site so everyone can see it.
