Whatever Challenge Wednesday - 2 Sketches 4 You

Whatever Challenge Wednesdays features a challenge from the blogosphere, chosen randomly.

Hi everyone,
We're playing with 2 Sketches 4 You today.

It's a bit of an unusual style for me and I was stumped, which made it a real challenge for me. So I kept the stamping quite simple, choosing to use a silhouette stamp from the Paradise stamp set.

I  think that because I chose this combo of colors, this card would  be suit able for a man or woman.  I couldn't find the proper background paper so I heat embossed more of the leaf pattern on the Early Espresso CS. I decided not to add any sentiment to the front since I'm not sure what I'm gonna be using it for.

The leaves on the white CS are stamped off the paper first and then stamped unto it to give it more of a watermark effect and the main leaf  was stamped with Old Olive Craft Ink and embossed with Clear EP. And yes... it's sewing you see on the Old Olive DSP! Even this late, I took out my Sew Mini and went to town. Quite proud of that!

Have nice stampin' day !!!

Magnifique utilisation de ce jeu d'étampes! Ça fait longtemps que je louche dessus, mais je ne me suis pas encore laissée tenter...
