STAMPlorations sketch #9 (ATSAM)

It's that time again.  Sketch Challenge #9 is live at STAMPlorations.


Now, I am the first person to admit that I am the last person to think of when thinking "elegant", but I went and got all elegant with this sketch.  At least my version of elegant.  Black and gold and art deco.


Have you noticed art deco becoming quite trendy?  This VIGNETTE: Art Deco Border Builders set is one versatile set, and it screamed to me to use it when I saw the sketch!  Nothing tricky here, just lots of gold embossing helped along with a few pencil lines as guides.

So have a gander at the great samples from the DT and our guest designer, Kathy S, and then join us for this sketch challenge. There are digi prizes to be had. And a guest designer spot next month.  Join us!

BTW, since it's CAS over at Addicted to Stamps and More, I'm in!


Supplies for thank you so much:
Paper: black CS American crafts
Stamps: STAMPlorations
Ink : Versamark
Tools: square punck EKS
Other: gold embossing powder
