SR #157 Not Quite Navy/Crumb Cake/Soft Suede/Very Vanilla
Here is my card for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge #157!
I used Not Quite Navy ink on the Eiffel Tower image from the SU stamp set Artistic Ethchings, and then blinged it up with some SU dazzling details. Using my retired SU tearing edge I made a fabulous edge and then smudged all the edges with Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake. The paper underneath is leftover from the Beau Chateau designer paper series which also has the browns of soft suede and crumb cake in it as well as a lighter shade of blue that I thought complimentary. I also edged the DSP with all the inks. The base layer is SU Whisper White paper that I ran through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice impressions folder. In th right corner, I have used an antique brad and in the lower left corner I used two SU rhinestones to accent the piece holding the sentiment. For that piece, I used the smallest of the label framelits and then stamped AMOUR in SU white craft ink. I then put on clear powder and set it with my heating tool. When done I took my Not quite Navy inkpad and smudged from the centre out to create that dynamic streaking that you can see if you look closely. The ink just rolled off the sentiment which shows up nicely against the streaky background. I used 5/8 whisper white organza ribbon to add an extra touch. Hope you like my latest creation. Happy Stampin'!
