Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 137



I layered Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, So Saffron, More Mustard and Vanilla. I color embossed the large Vanilla layer by rubbing the 'flat' side of the Finial Press embossing folder with So Saffron ink, the ran my piece of Vanilla cs through the Big Shot. If you don't make the sandwich too tight, you get a nice etching of color, giving it an old-fashioned, tin ceiling sort of feeling.

Stamps: Nature's Nest, Happy Everything

Paper: Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, More Mustard, So Saffron, Vanilla

Ink: Black, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Really Rust Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Pieces from the antique copper HPH, small oval punch, Dimensionals, Finial Press embossing folder, Big Shot, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, aquapainter
