My Dear Friend

Sketch Card #147
Don't you just love to experiment with colors ? I love to be able to mix and match colors. For this sketch challenge, I used Really Rust and River Rock. I have some left over vellum DP from SU with the copper leaves and I thought it would bring out the colors that I picked. I stamped the medallion flowers in Really Rust and distessed the edges; I then stamped 3 more flowers using White Craft ink in Really Rust paper, punched the center with the 3/4 circle punch and added the copper brads. I went crazy with the copper brads on the side of the sentiment.

RECIPE:
Stamps: Baroque Motifs,All Holidays
Paper: Really Rust, River Rock, Very Vanilla, SU DP
Ink: Really Rust, River Rock, White Craft
Accessories: Copper Brads,DS Ribbon
Tools: 3/4 Circle Punch,1/16 Circle Punch, Dimensionals

PS: As an aside, is there any way you can enlarge the print on your blog. I have no idea what that may entail and if it is even doable, but this over 40 stuff sucks when it comes to reading fine print as the old eyes aren't what they used to be :)
