STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge #4

Welcome to the latest bi-weekly sketch challenge at STAMPlorations!

Shery has a great sketch for us to play with. I love its CAS design. 




Have you joined in all our January challenges? Here is a great reason to play along -

Each month, we host 3 challenges: 1 monthly challenge that starts on the 1st Friday and 2 bi-weekly sketch challenges that start on the 1st and 3rd Monday. Those who participate in all 3 challenges for the month will be in the running to receive a prize package from our sister shop, All About Scrapping. We'll randomly pick one winner and announce who that is the following month before the next monthly challenge starts. Remember, you must participate in all 3 challenges that month for a chance to win a prize.



Here is my DT card -




I have used a set called VIGNETTE Art Deco Border Builders

I used a base of Very Vanilla cardstock with a panel of the same colour popped up on dimensionals.

The smallest stamp in this set was used to create the horizontal border behind the squares by restamping the image. This was inked with Wisteria Wonder. I then used Black ink for the main stamp which I punched out using my 1" square punch.

The sentiment was inked with Wisteria Wonder and is from my Express Yourself set from SU.

I had actually embossed a panel originally to use on this card but I really felt that the stamps were the perfect focal point for this clean and simple design.

I hope you will come and join in the fun. There is plenty of inspiration for you over at the challenge blog.  Pop on over and say hi.

Thanks so much for looking xx
