Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #40

This is Mary Jo's Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch #40. I did finish it yesterday, but my kids took over the computer, so I didn't get it scanned until this morning after they went to school.



My card is made with the Stampin' UP set Inspired by Nature and the sentiment is from the set More Great Greetings. I stamped the flowers on natural c/s with versamark and then used chalk to color them in. Then I cut the c/s out with deckle scissors. I used my close to cocoa ink pad to distress the edge and then added some brown chalk and sponged a little so saffron ink to brighten the edge a little. The circle with the sentiment was die cut with my sizzix, stamped with pumpkin ink and then the edges were distressed as above. I then sponged the entire circle with so saffron ink to give it some punch. I layered it on pumpkin c/s and cut that out with scallop scissors. The close to cocoa background c/s was stamped with Stampin' UP! b/g stamp Script. I again used versamark ink and then brushed brilliant gold PearlEx over it until I had the look I was going for. It has a subtle shine. The whole card was layered on pumpkin c/s. Then lastly I added some natural rafia and tied it in a knot. The card measures 6 1/4 X 5". Thanks for looking!
