Inspired by Skeem

Skeem is an on-line store and today’s pick for the SCS Inspiration Challenge (IC176). I was inspired by this Sea Spray pillar and used the layout from Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC77), hosted by Lori.

The Always bird was stamped with Basic Black Craft ink on Whisper White card stock, clear embossed, and cut out. The background was created with an emboss resist technique. Images were stamped with VersaMark ink and clear embossed, then the entire panel was brayered over with Bashful Blue ink. I rolled the Baroque Border wheel across the top with black StazOn ink and stamped the Lovely Letter E in the bottom right corner. The filigree designer brad and light blue rhinestone brad were the perfect embellishment for this card.

Thanks for stopping by!
