Happy Saturday! I have a card to share today that combines a few challenges. I am playing along with PTI Make It Monday Challenge. This week is debossing stamped images. I am using the colors from The Color Throwdown and the the sketch from Seize the Sketch.
It took a couple of tries to get the background look I was going for exactly the way I wanted it. I thought I could stamp first then deboss, but for this particular look and with the number of passes through my Vagabond, it looked better and was infinitely easier to deboss the background, make a stencil, then mask and stamp the background in that order.
I combined many PTI stamp sets to get the background look. I went vintage with this card. The background sort of took on that look while I was stamping so I went with it. I used Phrase Play 1 for the focal frame. I have decided that I just love these Phrase Play dies. For some added dimension I offset the pink sentiment intentionally just for effect. I finished my card with a seam binding bow topped with an aqua mist button and some clear sequins. I really like the finished product. I am also playing along with Simon Says Challenge. This week is "Anything Goes!"
