Bloggers Challenge 160

This week's Bloggers Challenge is a sketch. I really like this layout and I had a lot of fun with it. The stamp I used for the focal image from Stampington is one I have always liked. She is stamped with Versamark and embossed to get the sharp contrast of black on white. The middle panel is a piece of cardstock from Club Scrap. The background panel was made by spraying starfish glimmer mist over a stencil and then spraying the whole piece with pearl. The sentiment is from the Club Scrap Asian font.

Beautiful techniques with this one and very elegant results. I love the idea of shimmer ink over a stencil to get some really nice background effects.
