This is my first attempt at Beate's Weekend sketch Challenge. I found her blog while surfing through the stamping blogs.
To make this card I used: MME Wild Asparagus "Fall" stripe and Paisley paper (2005), light blue and cream card stock , Hero Arts "X" clear set, Color Box Chalk Ink "dark Brown, Versa Fine "Onyx Black", ribbon, and brads.
I stamped the image on cream card stock and then painted it in with watercolors. All of the edges are inked with dark brown ink. I stitched around the stamped image several times to draw attention to it and make it "POP". The brown and blue card stocks are the reverse side of the patterned paper.
I hope you enjoy my card. http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2007/08/17/weekend-sketch-challenge-15/
