Today I'm combining 3 challenges in one card.
1. Challenge 173 LNS - Paper, glorious paper - use up current designer paper that is about to retire
2. Hand Stamped Sentiments - Emboss resist technique here
3. Try Stampin' on Tuesday - the sketch here
The focal image was made using the emboss resist technique using Pewter embossing powder and the stamp set "Simply Soft" which is also going to retire. Marina Mist ink was used to highlight the image.
The card is mainly in tones on Marina Mist with a bit of Soft Suede, but I felt it needed a touch of another color, so I added a Pink Pirouette ribbon, thus altering the sketch a bit.
Instead of using clear embossing powder, I used pewter.
