Pocket Silhouettes Sketch Card

Good Morning Everyone!

It’s that time of week again….time for the Stamping 411 Sketch card.

This week I decided to do something not quite me but still crisp and clean….just a bit more contemporary. I had actually seen this image stamped somewhere and I just can’t recall where it was (please let me know so I can give you credit). I wanted to apply it to this sketch with some of our Rockabilly Designer Series Paper. I think the result is simple and smashing.

.......and here is my interpretation:

I used the Pocket Silhouettes and stamped the image with White Stazon. I then colored on it with our Stampin’ Pastels. I attached it to mats of Basic Black and Certainly Celery Cardstock with a Rhinestone Brad. In the background are the two strips of our Black tone on tone stripe Designer Series paper called “Rockabilly”. If you’d like to order any of these products make sure to visit my online store here. Remember you can shop 24/7!!

The Dimensions for the card are:

White Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Black Rockabilly DSP: 1"x 3 3/4" and 1" x 1 3/4"

Certainly Celery: 2" x 3"

Black Mat: 1 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Transparency: 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Stamp Image from Pocket Silhouettes in White Stazon Ink. then take your Pastels and select colors darker than what you desire as it will come out lighter. Take a sponge tip make up applicator and rub color over the Stazon. I also included a bit of color to the black mat.

I used the 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches for the sentiment.
