Beate's weekend sketch x 2




I played along with Beate's weekend sketch, although I should be cleaning up my craft area... it is a diaster. I will work on that today, once we attack all the leaves in our yard.
I decided to make two cards, I figured you cut cs in two pieces might as well make two. The one on left I copied one of Beate's idea of using jumbo eyelets and then putting rhinestone brads in the center. The one on right hand side, I used the build-a -brads for embellishment.
card recipe:
stamp: eastern blooms
ink: old olive, really rust, pumpkin pie, so saffron (ink pads and markers)
paper: haiku dsp, so saffron, very vanilla
accessories: old olive 5/8 grosgrain, build a brad, 1/2 inch circle punch, jumbo eyelets, rhinestone circle brads
