STAMPlorations Sketch #12


We've a new sketch challenge for you at STAMPlorations.  Our guest designer for this challenge is Debbie aka Indy.



I made the panel by colouring the deboss side of an embossing folder, and I was going to leave it at that then changed my mind and embossed it too.  Because I didn't emboss it straight away, the colours had time to spread, so it's a much grungier effect than colouring and embossing in one go.  My sentiment is from the new Sentiment Builders: Happy set and the splatter bar image is from Holiday Artsy.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog to have a look at what Debbie and the Design Team have created, and join in the fun!

  2. Super card, Shirley. This is surely one of those designs that makes a non-card maker think "how did she do that?!?". Stunning!
