You’re the Best (Sketch Challenge)

5 May

Stamper’s Dream and JustRite Stampers…what a fabulous combination. This week Stamper’s Dream is sponsoring a sketch challenge using JustRite Stampers. I couldn’t pass that up. You can see the info about the challenge and the sketch, of course, on Stamper’s Dream’s blog or on JustRite Stampers blog.

First, let me share the card I created. I had a friend in mind while I was making it and that always makes it so meaningful. I will give it to her today.

I was going for a shabby-chic look here and I think I found it.

Some features of this card, include: The embossed chipboard is a Glimmer Chip from Tattered Angels and I lightly colored the embossing with a Copic Marker and then, using several thin layers, I added Liquid Laminate from Beacon Adhesives.

To make the Glimmer Chip stand out even more, I sandwiched it between a Scalloped Oval die-cut from Spellbinders and a die cut and stamped oval. (Here are my JustRite stamps). Add a couple patterned papers, a satin bow, a torn edge and there you have it: shabby chic-ness for a good friend.

Here’s a close-up of the medallion.
