Sunday Stamps #40

I already had a few panels using this Polished Stone technique lying on my work table, because I am preparing some samples for my April classes. You can check out the dates at the top of my blog, just click on "classes".


When I saw this sketch by Tara, I was inspired to use this square piece in pink and yellow shades. I stamped the gorgeous chrysanthemum from Blooming with Kindness in Black Stazon, and then double mounted on So Saffron and Regal Rose. I fiddled quite a bit with the 'midriff' panel, wanting to put ribbon but finally deciding it would be too much, I cut a strip of retired Hostess DSP, Cheerful Treat.

I had edged the So Saffron strip with the lacy Edgelit Finishing touches and dry embossed using the Lacy Brocade folder, released in the Holiday catalogue, but carried over for now, which hopefully means it will be in the new annual catalogue too. Maybe the effect is a bit lost, since it is mostly behind the square.I chose a greeting from the Sweet Essentials stamp set, a lovely clear font with 8 different greetings for all occasions.

Sunday Stamps have this challenge open till Friday March 22nd, pop over to seek inspiration for yourself.

Cheers,
Rachel
