Freshly Made Sketches

I'm getting in just under the wire for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I watched a video recently from a live chat by Gina K Designs which demonstrated this fun technique using large stamps and cover plate dies (tutorial can be seen HERE).

I cut two panels that were 3 3/4" by 5". I placed them in my MISTI and stamped them both with the Slimline Poinsettias stamp from Colorado Craft Company using Versafine Clair Nocturne pigment ink.

I then took the Cover Plate: Herringbone die (Papertrey Ink) and die cut one of the stamped panels. I then cut two more plain white layers with the same cover plate so I could stack 3 of them together to give dimension. I them adhered the herringbone stack to the one stamped panel and it gives such a WOW factor! I layered two skinny postage frame die cuts in black and added a simple gold embossed sentiment.

STAMPS: Slimline Poinsettias (Colorado Craft Company); Merry Berry Wreath (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Versafine Clair Nocturne; Versamark.
PAPER: White, True Black (PTI).
DIES: Cover Plate: Herringbone, Border Bling: Skinny Postage (PTI)
OTHER: Gold embossing powder.
That's it for this Monday. Hope your week is starting off well!  ~Wanda

The black and white on this is inspired. And that touch of gold is the perfect accent. So glad to see you this week at FMS!
