Down the Hatch!

Beate is back with her weekend sketch challenges !!!!!!!!!!! Yah what fun! I was catching up my blog reading last night on my google reader when I noticed on one of the posts that Beate's sketch challenges were back ... as yet I hadn't seen her sketch and it was still a little early. Anyway as I knew that today I would be busy with other stamping I need to get working on this weekend I thought I would get my card made there and then cause I know the sketch would have just kept sidetracking me today if I didn't.

I decided to use some of my new stamps from Rubbernecker. The background is stamped onto river rock using black ink and I also sponged around the edges of the card using the same black ink and layered this to black card. I stamp my main image (the martini) onto white card using black ink, sponged the edges using river rock ink and colored the image, layer this to black and pomegranate card. I used my circle nestabilities to create all the layers for my verse. The band across the card has been stamped using CHF's weave backgrounder ... I use this background a lot!


Recipe:
Stamps: Martini, Martini Background & Verse - Rubbernecker; Weave Background - Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: White; River Rock; Pomegranate & Blue Bayou - Stampin' Up
Other: Black Ink; River Rock & Blue Bayou SU Inks; Circle Nestabilities; Ticket Corner Punch; Black Brads; Striped Ribbon; Foam Tape
