Ornamental Studio

Today's card is a double whammy for me. It uses Beate's Weekend Sketch #15 and also uses fall colors to qualify for the color challenge in Kimmie's Card Contest. My inspiration was the new Studio collection of paper by Memory Box. I just love these yummy colors and swirls. The main stamped image is from the Purple Onion Designs Ornamentals set. I bought the set almost a month ago and have just now gotten around to cutting it out. Poor neglected stamps! :(

Anyways, I stamped the image on Pearlized Cream paper in Timber Brown Stazon and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. Next I sponged the edges in varying degrees of Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red. Next I punched the Round Tab Punch from Pearlized Cream, inked up the edges and stamped Hi There from Fancy Flexible Phrases. I used a paper piercer to eyeball the holes to add the brads and then matted the main image on Real Red cardstock and used mini scalloped scissors to trim the edges. I really was having a hard time covering up this beautiful paper, so I decided to do a band of wide ribbon instead of the bottom panel. Hopefully that doesn't break the sketch rules enough to make the stamping gods frown upon me. ;) I used the horizontal slot punch to make inserts for the wide May Arts ribbon and tied it around the edges of the card on both sides. For the final touch I added some Diamond Glaze and Dazzling Diamonds mixture.
