Well, after completing about 30 swap cards I am happy to say that yesterday I was able to stamp for fun! I was inspired by this week's Color and Sketch Challenges over on SCS and I decided to take some time out for me. Although it is a fairly simple design, I am pleased with the way it turned out. It is different from my usual creations, and I think it has an elegan flair to it. I started with an 8" x 9 1/4" Purely Pomegranate card base, scored at 4" vertically. Then instead of folding back 3/4" on the front, I cut it and used my corner rounder (sans guard) to scallop the edge. Next I stamped the front of the card with my Ornate Tooled Leather background from Starving Artistamps in pomegranate ink. I then stamped the floral image (from the Large Silhouette Flowers sheet, also by Starving Artistamps) in Midnight Black VersaMagic ink onto a Sofy Sky mega Marvy Scalloped Oval. (Yes, I am *still* waiting on my Oval Nestabilities - both sets!) I used my 1/16" punch to notch each scallop. I used sone Soft Sky double stitched ribbon to hold the card closed. As a finishing touch I added mini flat-backed self-adhesive pearls to each of the scallops along the edge of the card. I will be posting pictures of my swap cards here in the next few days, so be sure to check back soon!
