Sketch 278 - Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Well happy Monday Morning.  When you see this, I will be in Virginia visiting my daughter's family.  By now I will have been holding my 6 month old grandson for 3 days and doing a lot of talking with my granddaughter.  I will also be leaving there today to come home.
 
So now on to this weeks sketch from Mary Jo.  I loved this sketch and decided to do some sponging with it.  More details below, but please check out Mary Jo's and the Design Teams sample for "the Monday Lunchtime Sketch" and here is my sample for this weeks sketch.
 
 
So here is what I did to sponge the circle and the scallop on the white. 
 
  • I punched out the 2 1/2" circle and centered the piece of paper the circle was punched out in the center of the white paper.
  • I sponged within the circle on the edges and out a little with more of the Cajun Craze Ink and less in the center to leave a little white.
  • I punched out the 2 3/8" scallop circle and placed the punched out piece in the center of the paper with the punched out circle.  (Hope you know what I am talking about.)
  • I then sponged the Chocolate Chip ink into the area surrounding both pieces of paper sponging a few times to get it really dark and look like a border.
  • Still leaving the circle template in place, I then stamped my image with the Chocolate Chip in the center of the circles.
  • And voila, you see what you get.  I then cut as needed and decorate card as needed.
Here is a side view of this card.
 
 
And then the inside where I used another image from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set along with a scripture.  Then I will be able to write on note on the bottom portion of the card.
 
 
All items used are Stampin' Up! except scripture noted below!
