First off - be sure to hop on over to The Pursuit Of CraftYness blog for the last projects in the "Something Old" feature. My card uses up a bunch of my eyelets that have been sitting here way too long!!!
Since I love working with sketches, I wanted to share a couple with you today. This one uses one of my newest purchases - these way-too-cute Paper Bag Studios stamps.
This first one is my Card Positioning Systems card for this week but I also wanted to be able to share a close up. The paper I stamped on started out just plain cream colored. After stamping my two main images and embossing them with black embossing powder, I added color with Fluid Chalk stamp pads and a couple kinds of spray color. I embossed the images with black because when I went to rub them with the stamp pads, I could rub that color off of the black images and they would show up a little stronger.
This second card uses the 2 Sketch 4 U sketch #6 and another of my newest purchases - some amazing October Afternoon papers!!!
The edges of the striped piece of paper were distressed with the Tonic Paper Distresser, just a nice way to help that piece stand out a little big more against the other pattern. I cut the flowers from the reverse side of one of the prints and the flowers were covered with the Paper Glaze which just adds a nice bit of emphasis.
