CCMC235 Sketch Challenge

This week at Create with Connie & Mary we have a sketch challenge.


I decided to go masculine with this card, using the new By the Tide set in the upcoming mini.  


My card base is Crumb Cake, stamped with the Netting background and sponged in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  The main image is clear embossed with Soft Suede ink then masked and overstamped with the text stamp from the By the Tide set.  I then sponged around the edges using Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.

A neutrals button tied with a sliver of cardstock finishes off the card.

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary to check out the rest of the challenge team's submissions.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  By the Tide; Netting
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake; Soft Suede; Neutrals DSP
Ink:  Versamark; Soft Suede; Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Sponges; Clear EP; Linen Thread; Neutrals Button

Cheers
Karren
