Congratulations Grad - Technostamper # 256

My blog post may look a little different today.  Blogger has been down for over 24 hours, so I changed my internet provider to Google chrome.  Amazingly it worked.  I am actually able  to post today!

Easter is this weekend, and after Easter, for those who are in school, comes final exams, and then graduation.

 For today's challenge with Technostamper  here I made a graduation card. To do this I turned the sketch onto its side.,+January+29,+2013+01.24.32+PM.jpg

The base card is Basic Black, layered with Bashful Blue, and then DSP from the Festival of Prints pack.  A strip of Basic Black with a strip of scalloped More Mustard card stock was adhered to the top of the card.

The image was stamped twice , once with Island Indigo ink and once with Black Stazon. Using a stamp-a-ma-jig and Island Indigo ink, the words congratulations were stamped onto the ribbon.  The large scalloped circle was then punched with the 2 3/8" circle punch, reattaching the ribbons later. The ribbon was cut out by hand.
With a 1 1/4 " circle punch, the sentiment was punched out of the second image.  A 1 3/8" basic black circle was punched to provide a mat for the sentiment.  The two were adhered together, and attached to the first image using dimensionals.  The ribbon was now reattached to the scalloped circle.
The entire image was attached, using dimensionals,  to a doilie that had been adhered to the DSP.

Inks: Black Stazon, Island Indigo
Papers: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, More Mustard, DSP from Festival of Prints pack, Doilie
