STAMPlorations Sketch #20


We've got a new sketch for you over at STAMPlorations.  I stamped and masked three poinsettia images, coloured them and the background with Distress Inks, then cut the panel into strips.  I then cut a portion off each strip, alternating top and bottom, edged each strip with black marker pen, then stuck the middle piece down centrally on the card and matched up the images on the other strips, working outwards.  I moved my sentiment to the bottom of the card.


Pop over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what the design team and our guest designer, the one and only Darnell, have created for your inspiration, then join in to win!  Don't forget to enter our monthly challenge too.
