Dream Gardens

Good Morning Everyone!

Here we are again with yet another Stamping 411 Challenge….where does the time go?

Here is the sketch:ssc117

…and here is my interpretation…..

Dream Gardens 001

I have showcased the “Dream Gardens’ Stamp Set and also used Embrace Life for the card background.

The card base is done in Basic Black and is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 …..the Crushed Curry mat is 4” x 5 1/4”….the small black mat is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2….crushed Curry is 2 3/8 “x 3 3/8” and the image piece is 2 1/4” x 3 1/4” .

I Stamped the image in black and used my markers to color in different areas of her kimono. I had these cute little drink umbrella’s so I cut one down and place it at the top of the card. I knotted some black grosgrain and attached with my Mono Multi adhesive (I love that stuff) and then added an element with my circle punches to finish it off.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and hope that you will hop on over to Stamping 411 and play along or just visit if you’d like. There is a whole lot of talent over there between the Operators and the people playing along. It’s always fun to see how many different ideas you can get with one sketch.

Hope to see you back soon!

….and as always…

have a Stampinglee Good Day!
