Tuesday Morning Sketches #474

Hello. Thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a nice canvas.  You will love it - Debbie did a great job.

My card features the brand new Gina K Designs Mandala Builder stamp set.  I don't usually fall head over hills for new stamps. I tend to ponder them for a little bit.  There was no pondering on this one - I bought it immediately.  This type of set just makes me think of my daughter and my oldest sister.

I used colors by Kelley Purkey and they went together so well.  I also embossed a few of the pieces of the mandala with Platinum embossing powder by WOW!  I love love LOVE now this turned out.  But the mandala was so gorgeous that I couldn't cover it up!  So I cut a frame from vellum and also embossed it with Platinum embossing powder.  I messed it up a little and it's a little cockeyed but hopefully I masked it well with the placement of the corner elements and bringing the sentiment strip up and over.  The sentiment is from Mondo Sakura stamp set by Ellen Hutson.

Take a look at this shine....

Pretty gorgeous, right!?  I love this embossing powder.  I want to turn everything platinum!

Okay - be sure to visit the team and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  We'll see you there!

What a gorgeous card and a wonderful take on the sketch. I've been watching Rina's videos using this set. It really looks like it such fun! And believe it or not I am actually going to a workshop on Saturday with Rina and Gina K for the wreath builder. I'm really excited about that! The wreath builder has been on my list for some time now and I hope they don't sell out before I get there. Have a wonderful week!
