Card for Unscripted Sketches 02

Here is the Unscripted Sketches , Sketch #02

Here is my version





















I used CTMH's Silhouette Creative Basics paper and ribbon that came with the pack and some black CTMH CS.

I used this cool embossing plate I just bought. You basically put the brass plate on a light source, with the paper over the top and use your embossing stylus and trace the image. It was SO EASY and so super cool looking. Sadly it really doesn't show up on the picture. Then I rubbed some shimmery chalk over the image and mounted it. I added some Prima Flowers with some flat pearl embellies.
Here is the light 'table' and the brass 'stencil' I used.





While I am not happy with the card..It was a starting point. I really did enjoy using the dry embossing stylus on that stencil. I will have to perfect my technique for coloring them. Any pointers would be appreciated!
I am exhausted my my Girl Scout overnighter (but it was fun) and am looking at a merciless 12 hour shift tomorrow!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
P.S. If you haven't been over to Wonderfully Whimsy this week then you are missing OUT!!! Rachel's Mom has posted a weeks worth of totally amazing art, and you have GOT to check it out. Talk about talented.
Enjoy!!

Great job on this sketch! I love the Silhouette paper pack. It just goes with everything! My fave part is the embossing- it really need to get my plates out and do it more often. Thanks for inspiring!
