I don't normally get a chance to stamp mid-week, but today is a holiday as it is ANZAC Day here in New Zealand. Today is the day we remember the servicemen who played a part in the Gallipoli campaign of 1915 as well as all other wars our troops have been sent to.
I decided to spend some of my day off stamping (of course LOL). I made a card for this week's Stamping 411 sketch challenge. Here is the sketch I worked with:
I decided I wanted to do some emboss resist and chose Pear Pizzazz as my starter color. From there, I used the Color Coach to decide on the color combo of Pear Pizzazz; Cajun Craze and More Mustard. As Love and Care was already on my desk, I used that. After embossing and sponging, I splattered some water on the cardstock to give it a bit more interest. I found some old Earth Elements buttons to embellish the card.
Onto the card:
