River Love

There has been a change in plans for my monthly stampin' club. I was originally planning on doing a card with the Tart & Tangy stamp set. Well Janet has changed my mind. She really wants to do the card that I created for this weeks Sketch Challenge. So I need to create a few examples of cards using this stamp set.


Here is the first. I like this card, but it was a lot more elegant in my head. It is really difficult to photograph river rock, (don't know why). This is prettier IRL. I think I will try it with soft sky and see if that is better. I think I went over board on the layers of my scallop circle -- Do you think 7 layers is too much? (wink wink)

Stamps: Essence of Love, Riveting
Paper: River Rock, Basic Black, Whisper White, Brocade Backgrounds (DP)
Inks: River Rock, Basic Black
Extras: Sponges, Adhesive Dots, Dimensionals, Mat Pack, Scallop, 1-1/2", 1-3/8", 1-1/8", 1", and 1/2" circle punches
