Priscilla's Stamping 411 challenge sketch #152

I just noticed that I am using the same stamp set as two of the samples done by the operators - so I hope that mine is a little different.  Usually I do not look at the samples until I put mine on the blog just so my design is not too influenced by the enormous talent shown in the operators designs.  This stamp set just calls out for a "shabby Chic" treatment so everything is sponged - hard to see on the So Saffron card stock but it is there.  Now mount the focal point on dimensionals and also the coconut drink and I must say I really like this card.  Colors used are Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, and the lovely Old Olive.


This is this weeks 411 sketch.  Check out the 411 web site at  http://stamping411.blogspot.com/ for some great tips and the operators take on this sketch.  Now you try out this sketch and have fun!
