Clearly Inspired ... by a Sketch

Another great day for the Clear Dollar Stamps' Clearly Inspired Challenge - #37. Today, we have one of my very favorite kind of challenges - sketch! This sketch was quite interesting to work with. I hope you find it as fun as I did - and that you play CIC for a chance to win.

I turned the sketch to make it work for the image I used. To add a little interest, I rounded only one corner and added some fun, flower confetti. A pink pigment ink pad was brushed across the embossed swirls on the brown. Faux stitching was added to the 3 colored bars behind the image.

Card Recipe :
stamps : Ice Cream Cone
paper : Berry Blast, Orange Whip, Mossy Woods, Pretty Porcelain, white, brown
ink : black, pink pigment
Copics : None
