Technostamper Sketch 4 - Magic Pattern

Sometimes life is just "bradilicious." Or at least, that is what I am telling myself!

This is my version of the Technostamper Sketch Challenge #4. I used the Magic Pattern Technique for the focal point image. Magic Pattern is featured in the February 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I wish my photo showed the texture on the image in more detail -- you will have a better view if you click on the image to make it larger.

Let me tell you, it took a considerable amount of Jockeying to get the Cuttlebugged edges on the long side of the card!!!!

The layout for this challenge is here:

Of course, I can't leave well enough alone, so I turned the layout and used it on a long card. I like it this you?
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go shopping for more brushed silver brads!
Stamps: Seaside Stamping (By the Sea...), Stampin' Up! (Mesh BG, Crackle BG & Seaside)
Ink: StazOn, VersaMark, Really Rust, More Mustard, Basic Gray
Paper: Watercolor Paper, More Mustard, Basic Gray, Copper
Misc: Brads (and more brads), Cuttlebug

I love the brads. Looks great. You did a super job making the long end embossed too. I did that the other day so know what you mean -- it can be tricky. I hope to try this technique this week it is so cool looking. Thanks for playing.

Pat, your card is great, as always. The sketch looks great on it's side, but also as a long card, and the texture from the 'bug adds so much. Beautiful technique on the seashell!
