I don't play sketch challenges all that often but the mood struck me today and I decided to visit somewhere new so this card is based on Laura's Sketch 24 on the 2 Sketches 4 You blog - thanks Laura!
I've used a stamp set I got yesterday called Ornamental Beauty which is Julia Stainton's first design for CHF - I'm sure it won't be her last, it's lovely! You can click through for a bigger pic so you can see the intricate detailing on these designs - love it!
So many elements to play with too - everything here is from the set: roundel, corner scroll, border, journalling block and sentiment.
I used the roundel to make my focal point, stamping twice and cutting just the centre element from one and the full shape from the other. I've curved the edges up to give it some dimension and joined the layers with a touchy-feely velvet brad.
I wiped most of the ink away from the lines in the journalling block before stamping to give a faded out feel and make the sentiment more prominent.
