It's Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built. This week we have a sketch for you:
That diamond element made me think of my favorite Fleur De Lis square dies and from there, I just got a bit "fancy". Wasn't really intending to go that way, but I really like how it turned out.
I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and then colored in the poinsettia with a red sharpie; the fine point tip was perfect! For the diamond element, I die cut two of the squares and then used a ruler and my craft knife to cut out the center of one of them. I stamped the music background on to the second die cut square and layered them together to create a frame of sorts. Head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the team did with this; they are all sooooo completely different; the variety is awesome. I hope you get a chance to play with us this week, sketches are always a great way to start a card.
Dies: Spellbinders "Fleur Di Lis squares" and "Radiant Rectangles" oval; Darice Damask embossing folder
