Skipping Stones Design Sketch #101

Hi everyone! Its time for another Skipping Stones Design Tuesday Sketch Challenge! When I saw this weeks sketch I though it would be perfect for a layout! I turned the sketch and added stamping with Rustic Tiles to mimic the scallops. Creative Impression brads fill the centers of the stamped images. I also used a Creative Impression metal embellishment to hold the ribbon. 

The chipboard letters were originally purple and I inked them up with Versamark and covered them in Stampendous Aged Copper embossing powder. 

The purple? Yep, my son wants to know why theres purple on his layout too, lol! Originally I was working with Christmas pictures that had alot of purple in them. I stamped out the cardstock and embossed it in purple before switching gears and using B/W photos instead. I loved the combination of black, purple, copper and white with the B/W photos! 


Supplies Used:
Skipping Stones Design (Rustic Tiles)
Stampendous (Aged Copper Embossing Powder)
Creative Impressions (embellishments)

Your son is so handsome and this is a great take on the sketch to turn it into a SB layout! Love the use of rustic tiles- it's the perfect use and adds so much without being too much!
