Skipping Stones Designs- SSD 74.5

I am so excited to be invited back to stamp along with the Skipping Stones Designs DT for May! I always love working with SSD stamps! Their stamps range from cute to elegant to humorous. Instead of a sketch this week this weeks challenge (SSD74.5) is "anything goes". You can use any sketch you want! 

I worked with Timeless Textures to create the blue pattern paper in this card. I stamped the pattern in Versamark and embossed it in clear embossing powder. Next I went in with Distress Ink and blended in some blue color. A bit of tulle and twine tied in a bow with a button finishes it off. 


Supplies Used:
 Embossing Powder (Stampendous Clear)
Ink (Distress Ink Faded Jeans, Versamark)
Pattern Paper (Echo Park)
Stickers (American Crafts)
Punches (Kreaxions 303)


I used one of my new Kreaxion punches (#303) to create the punched border along the bottom. I punched it once in red and once in white cardstock without any inserts. Next I cut tiny blue scraps of paper to lay behind the punched design before adhering it to the red cardstock. The result is a bit of blue peeking through the punched design.
