Clean & Simple Layout Challenge

Today’s card is for Natasha Trupp’s “Fall-to Layout” challenge #38. Her blog is called Clean & Simple Stamping.

Both of the stamps I used are from a clear set by Stampendous. I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink on PaperTrey Ink’s Stamper's Select white cardstock. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. I stamped the image on scratch paper, cut out the image rectangle, and used it to mask off the area outside the image. I then dabbed a Versamark pad over the colored image and embossed it with Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder. Then I used Versamark on it again and embossed it with Deep Impressions embossing powder. I wish you could see the sparkle better, but I’m including a close-up so you can see it closer. I didn’t have a button the right color, and I’m not sure a button would have been the right embellishment, anyway. So I used a little “bling.”

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

I love the two tones of aqua that you used. I don't think I would have thought to use two different shades to mat with; great idea!
