STAMPlorations Sketch #23


Time for a new sketch at STAMPlorations.  Rather than interpret the pattern as diamonds, I chose to interpret it as mesh.  I sponged some Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks through a TCW stencil (Fence Frame), then stamped the gorgeous Christmas tree and sentiment from Oh, Christmas Tree! in Versafine Onyx Black, and added some turquoise Stickles to the tree.  Simples!


So pop over to STAMPlorations to have a look at the fabulous inspiration from the team, and from our guest designer, Ingrid, and join in the fun.  You don't have to use STAMPlorations stamps, but if you do, you can also add your entry to the ongoing Anything Goes challenge for more chances to win.


There's a fabulous pre-release deal on the newest STAMPlorations stamps.  Click here for details.

  2. This is so cool! Wonderful take on the sketch and I love your clean style on this! These cards look so easy to do, but when you try to do it, it is not that simple - at least not for me. :)

  4. Love your 'mesh!!!' The blues are so lovely, and I'm loving the solid sentiment on top of the mesh. But that tree...oh my goodness, it has got to be one of my very favorites. Just gorgeous. Bev
