WSC Baja Revisited
Good Saturday Morning Peeps!
Today's card is made with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge.
I so loved and miss baja. It is one of my favorite colors of all time. I also loved the Parisian Speciality Paper from the last catalog . We just don't have any paper in the new catalog that compares to this one, in my opinion anyway. So for this card I pulled out these old in colors and paper and paired it up with some chocolate chip and the Friends 24-7 Stamp set.
The base is chocolate chip, followed by baja and then the DS paper. the next layer is chocolate chip and more of the DS paper. The main image is the beautiful damask from the stamp set. I stamped it with some baja ink and then used a sentiment from the Kind & Caring Thoughts stamp set, stamped with chocolate chip ink. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement of the sentiment where I wanted it. It was then matted with chocolate chip and then baja. This is mounted to the base with dimensionals. I added some non-SU white satin ribbon and a bow. The 24-7 is stamped with chocolate chip and punched out with my 1-1/4 inch circle punch, that has a rough spot on it and it leaves a rugged place on the circle!!! UGH!!! I then matted that with a 1-3/8 inch circle of chocolate chip and then finally layered onto a scallop circle of baja. I pierced the scallops with my piercing tool and mat pack. I also added a bit of piercing under the 24-7. I finished ups with some pretty sticky pearls, two on the damask piece and three on the chocolate layer.
Well, that is all for today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
