hers. Julee is the uber-talented owner of Verve Stamps; her card and my copy are for Verve's monthly inspiration challenge.
I started with some blue and cream paper with a wood grain pattern which I thought was a good idea many years ago. I stenciled over the paper using Tim Holtz's Clockworks stencil and Smoky Slate ink. I might have been able to copy Julee's choice of stamps, but I opted instead for Paisley Perfect Flair from Close to my Heart. I inked up the various paisleys with sweet leaf, pear, Hollyhock and blush pigment inks from CTMH as well as purely pomegranate from SU. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black and then clear embossed it so it would show more. Added some onyx Liquid Pearl's and a few pink seed pearls from my Grandma's stash for embellishments, because I don't have any sequins!
I distressed the edges then mounted it over some graphite sparkly paper from my scrap stash and a layer of purely pomegranate, also distressed. Finally, I mounted all layers on Basic Gray cardstock. I hope I get over my gray phase before that paper runs out!
