Simply Less is More Challenge #21 is to use a very elegant sketch - simple but, if executed well, really good and pleasing to the eye. Question now is did I execute the sketch well? See for yourself.
stamps: Stampin Up Very vintage (roller), Sweet Sentiments
inks: SU Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
others: Cuttlebug embossing folders, rustic twine, SU perals, 1 3/8" circle punch
I wanted to try a new technique I learned, brayer ink over embossing. I'm really quite happy with the effect. By the time Crumb Cake was layered on, it looked rather dark hence the decision to go with Soft Suede for the sentiment. I had trouble deciding where to put the sentiment - bottom centre or bottom right. I'm still not sure, it is where it should be but there it is. I'm declaring it done.
