Stamping 411 Sketch #236

Hi Everyone,
Time for another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411.
Here is the sketch:
…and my interpretation.
sketches 236-237-238-1 002
I used the new Apothecary Art Stamp Set on this one. Can I say I’m in love with this new product!!! Well I am!!! Talk about card making made easy!!!
The base of the card is Very Vanilla and cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half. The next layer is 4 x 5 1/4 and run through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I attached my Always Artichoke to the back of that mat after tying my double bow on my bow maker. I then stamped the image in Black Stazon onto a piece of Very Vanilla and placed it in my Big Shot using the new Framelits to cut the shapes. Holy Moly!! It’s fantabulous!!!
The coloring was done with my Aqua Painter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons..I went with Rich Razzleberry on this one. Love it!!! So rich and Beautiful in real live and took me no time at all.
I hope you will play along with us this week on this fun sketch. If you’re like me I needed the break and so enjoyed just sitting and playing with my new toys!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Lee! This is stunning! I can see how you would love this new stamp set, it is so pretty. The new dies are great too. I'm so excited that SU! started carrying these. What beautiful inspiration you gave me today. Hope you have a nice New Year's.

Beautiful card!

I love the classic simplicity of this -- especially your use of the folder on the white layer! And, of course, the bow is perfection!!

So pretty! Love just the artichoke and white with a splash of Razzleberry. So clean and elegant!

Christine Crutcher said...

Very beautiful card yet so simple - absolutely gorgeous card!

This is another beauty from the queen of the white cards!!!! I love how the artichoke mat is just slightly larger than the focal image. Did you use a technique similar to that when we mat with the same punch?

Awsome card Lee, but all your cards are. This is so elegant.
Thanks for sharing your talent.

P.S. what's a url I never know what to put? LOL
