Damask Delights...


Hope you've all had a good weekend! I've been busy making the most of the glorious sunshine we've had here today, but that's not to say I haven't found a spot of time to get inky!

I decided to play along with Becky's Compose A Card Challenge #6. I like how you get an accurate recipe of ingredients and then just see where it takes ya:

I loved the idea of embossing with white ep on soft stone cardstock, it's so subtle but so pretty too.I was nearly done with this card but felt it needed something else...I dared to ink up a big Damask Design and stamp over my embossed panel (with my breath held tight LOL!) I'm not sure if I like it, but it provides more of a focal point anyways! Oh and I distressed the edges a bit with Enchanted Evening ink too - I think I must be on a distressing kick at the mo!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Damask Designs
Ink: Versamark/Enchanted Evening
Card: Enchanted Evening/Soft Stone/Stamper's Select White
Accessories: Enchanted Evening Satin Ribbon/Enchanted Evening Vintage Button/Martha Stewart Punch/White Detail EP/White Gel Pen

Just a quick post tonight, it's late and I need to sleep! So wish I could watch the Oscars tonight but I'd be a walking zombie for work tomorrow if I did, darn that time difference!

Thanks soooooo much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by soon when I draw a winner for my Blog Candy and we also have a new challenge on our PTI blog!

Catch ya later!

Ooooh Aimes, I love it!! Very brave to go with that big damask but it totally paid off I think! Gives you a little break from CAS too, haha!

Hasn't it been *wonderful* having some sunshine this weekend?! I even had to put the cool air on for a minute in my car! Now I really can't wait for Summer, lol!!
