TSSC36 Pocket Silhouettes

Here it is the beginning of a new week again and time for Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge! I'm so glad to get to participate this week. These are good stampin' "exercise"! : )

Here is this week's sketch from Mary Jo (aka Technostamper):

I turned the sketch on it's side this week in order to use my new Pocket Silhouettes stamp set for the first time. I really like this set and its organic images. They are rather dainty and can be used on small cards, as backgrounds, singley or in groupings as in my card below. AND this is one of the stamp sets that is 15% off it's regular price until September 30! I hope you've purchased yours already so you don't miss out! There are some wonderfully versatile and useful sets on that list!

My card base is Elegant Eggplant stamped with the Stitched background in Eggplant ink. It shows up in person but not so much here because of the lighting (sorry I had to take this picture at night). The lower layer is Lavendar stamped with the Canvas stamp in VersaMark, layered on Vanilla then the sentiment was stamped with Eggplant Craft ink and embossed with Clear EP. A length of olive grosgrain with a tie encircles this layer.

I stamped two of the pussy willow images in olive and then used markers to ink up the flower stamp for the center. I love that new Wide Oval punch and it is just right for these images. After punching them out, I sponged olive ink around the edges of each oval and layered them over the Lavendar layer with Stampin' Dimensionals..

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Heard from the Heart (sentiment); Stitched and Canvas Background stamps
Ink: VersaMark, Eggplant Elegance Classic and Craft, Old Olive
Markers: Eggplant Elegance, Old Olive
Cardstock: Eggplant Elegance, Lavendar Lace, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Sponge, Dimensionals, Clear Embossing Powder. All products from Stampin' Up!

This is a really a nice sketch; it is just great for this stamp set! I'll be using this one again!

How beautiful. I swear to you this is the exact thought I started with but in the new blues but I could not get it to work so I switch to the wedding card. You DID make it work, you rock! Great card. Thanks for playing.

My first impulse was to use this set, but my hand landed on other sets instead. You've created a beauty!
