TSSC11 -- Walnut Ink Resist


This week's sketch from Mary Jo Price Williams Technostamper's Sketch Challenge is an easy classic. I had so many ideas for this sketch that I didn't know how to begin! I finally settled on a Triptych featuring the Walnut Ink Resist from the April 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I used a Coppery Walnut Ink and it is very shimmery in person. I love the way this turned out.


This 5" x 7" Sympathy card uses Bella Rosa Paper Art Stamps for the Flowers, combined with a Lasting Impressions with Panache word- "Hope". The piece behind the flowers is a copper paper that I ran through my Cuttlebug. The Background paper is a gorgeous piece of handmade mulberry paper that I had in my stash.


Make sure to go to Mary Jo's Blog to see the original sketch, and to play along!

Lovely card Pat. I was thinking the cuttlebugged piece was actually corrugated. Another embossing folder now to add to the old wish list.

This is a gorgeous card! I liked the way you used the piece of Cuttlebug embossed paper. I'm regretting not getting that folder now that you've shown me the possibilities!
