Elements of Style Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge. Can you believe another week has gone by? I can’t!!! I hope you’ll hop on over and play along with us this week.

Here is the sketch:


….and my interpretation……

 Elements of Style 002 

I showcased the Elements of Style Stamp Set out of the New Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog.  Isn’t it pretty?

I stamped the image on Watercolor Paper with Stazon and colored in with my aqua Painter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I then mounted it onto a larger circle of Black to make the mat.

The card itself measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2

Black Mat: 4 x 5 1/4

Vanilla Embossed Piece is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8

I then attached some Black Satin Ribbon and attached to the back of the two mats and then put the circles on with dimensionals. The Bird is stamped on Very Vanilla and cut out and adhered with dimensionals as well. The saying was stamped with a small scrap and cut out.

Then…………..I decided to spray it with Smooch Spray….take my word for it you wan to do this before assembling your card. I have it everywhere and that was not my intentions. Little is more and I have LOTS!!! It’s till a pretty card but I will smooch before I assemble next time. By the way the Hummingbird has a crystal eye but I smooched it and it’s white!!!! hehe

Thanks for stopping by and as always I wish you a …….

Stampinglee Good Day!
