Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #231

Hi Everyone,
This is really a different sketch today, I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then I got this idea. Hope you like it.
Here is the sketch
….and my interpretation. Wow!! Not sure why my camera has a glow to it in the right corner at the bottom but it does…huh? I’d like to say I know how to work with filters to soften things but this is not the case. hehe… you get some special effects here too!!
Sketches 231-232-233 001 
The card base here is So Saffron and is cute to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2
The mat is done in Black and run through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing Folder.
Then we are back to a So Saffron Mat that measures 3 1/8 x 4 1/4…then I have a clack mat measuring 3 x4.
The image pieces are actually the Timeless Portrait cut into 3/4” squares and attached to the black Mat. I ran that through the Big Shot as well with the Finial Press and sponged in So Saffron when done just to age it a bit.
I tied a single bow with the Black Satin and Crochet Trim Ribbons together for an old timey look and attached with glue dots.
It’s kind of different…..and I can use it for just about any occasion. Make sure to check out the Stamping 411 site to see what the other Operators have come up with.
Have a great weekend!
