STAMPlorations November Theme and Sketch

There's a new Theme and Sketch challenge at STAMPlorations.

Here's my take on the Sketch using: 
Rise and Grind - Dee's Artsy Impressions
Be Strong - Typografia In Faith
Brave One - Shery Russ Designs
Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

  • I first repeat stamped Be Strong - Typografia In Faith with light gray ink for the background
  • Trimmed with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
  • Then on a separated piece of white cardstock; inked Rise and Grind - Dee's Artsy Impressions and several blooms from Brave One - Shery Russ Designs with black permanent ink
  • Colored them in with Watercolor markers and some CREAMEEZ
  • Fussy cut all the images
  • Arranged all the goodness onto the cardfront
  • Partially stamped and heat embossed in black the sentiment below the cup and saucer
  • Added a touch of shimmer for a simple embellishment

See how I altered the Rise and Grind by covering the rose image with all the blooms from Brave One.  
The SHIMMER is brought to you by Bumbly Bee SHIMMERZ paint.

Hope you are inspired to play along at STAMPlorations!
Rules to play:
  • Players can link up to 6 projects -- any type of project is welcome as long as there is stamping. 
  • Projects must be based on the theme, sketch, or both. 
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK 
  • To qualify for the prize, players must display challenge graphic and link back to the challenge post (blogs only) 
  • Prizes: $15 GC for the winner (voted by the team); $5 GC to three (3) randomly picked players
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your day is Blessed!

Beautiful I thank you for reminding me how to stamp backgrounds with sentiment stamps - I need to put a large note on my crafting space because I like the look - lovely work here! So lovely!
