Polish Pottery

This weeks Card Patterns Sketch paired with Jay Gees Nook inspiration photo was the PERFECT combo to whip out a new set of stamps I've been wanted to ink up. I had fun coloring my little pot of coffee to resemble one you'd find in a Polish Pottery shop. 

I pulled the golden hues out of the photo with my Brushed Gold paper from SU! and some retired gold cord. With Baja Breeze as my base color, I layered the gold and then a strip of Daffodil Delight with Bashful Blue on top of that. To mimic the blue striped on the card in the photo, I cut 1/4" strips of Bashful Blue & Baja Breeze and layered them one right after the other to create the fun backdrop for my coffee pot....which was stamped in Versa Mark & heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. A small Marina Mist bow and of course a golden sentiment to finish my card with a bit of yellow bling. I also edged my card and center blue striped square with a bit of white.

Punches Used: Word Window L, Modern Label XL, Scallop Edge Border
