A Victorian Frame...2S4Y66 49

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 8, 2010 @ 8:00 AM | , ,

Hi There! Time for another fabulous sketch designed by Laura for 2Sketches4You to challenge your creativity. Layers of Color Art Stamps is sponsoring this week's challenge and will also be holding a blog hop on their site (click HERE). Here's my interpretation of Laura's sketch:
To create my card, I used both Layers of Color Victorian Frame stamp and Layers of Color Belle Brocade art stencil.  I inked up that gorgeous Victorian Frame stamp with VersaMark ink, embossed with white embossing powder then using a S4-290 Labels Fourteen die template to cut/emboss the image. Layers of Color makes several stamps that coordinate with Spellbinders™ die templates! :) Once I had the frame made, I added another layer using a rub-on sentiment from K&Company.
Up close, you can see all the beautiful detail in the embossed Victorian frame. Notice the red & white ornate paper in the middle? Well, I made that using the Layers of Color Belle Brocade art stencil.
Here's a photo showing how I stenciled the middle layer:
All you need is some ink and a sponge dauber - super easy to create your own custom DP!

That's all I have for today - thanks so much for visiting :) Please visit the 2Sketches4You site as well as all the 2S4Y DT gals for some awesome inspiration! Hope you join along in the fun :)

Be Sweet!
