Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone!

Time for another sketch challenge over at Stamping 411. I have no idea where this week has gone…just flew by!!

Well here we go….here is the sketch (feel free to play along)

ssc156 (2)

……and here is my interpretation……...

   SKetch 156 Studio Sketches 001

I thought and thought I wanted to do a summer card as it’s so hot here…but this set just kept glaring at me from my shelf of goodies. So here it is. It’s a Sneak Peek at one of the Stamp Sets coming in the new Catalog. It’s called Studio Sketches. I love it!!!

I used Very Vanilla for the Card Base 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” and ran the front of the card through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing Folder.

I have a a strip of Chocolate Chip that is 4 1/4” and tore it in half for the torn edges. I layered a piece of Bravo Burgandy on top of that that is 3” x 4 1/4”. Then I have a Very Vanilla Piece stamped with En Francais’ in Bravo Burgandy. My Image piece is2 1/2” x 2 1/2” and matted on Chocolate Chip that is 2 3/8” x 2 3/8”. I stamped the image with Basic Brown and colored with my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen to blend.

Lets not forget the ribbon and Button…..for a little touch of pazazz!!

That’s it. Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you over at Stamping 411 with the challenge.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

What a beautiful card, Lee. Your white on white is so effective, and the Chocolate Chip really sets off the art piece (which is beautifully colored) and the background. Great creation.
