Ismaki Challenge

Hi everyone;
What a busy week it has been so far, days are just flying by. As I was doing my blog stalking, I came across the an awesome card by Nikki. She had made the card for the Ismaki challenge. The challenge was to follow a sketch by Isa. Well, being the curious cat that I am, of course I had to go take a look. It was a fabulous sketch and I knew I just had to play along. Its a bit of a different style for me, but I am happy with the result.

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I also added some stickles. These images are from a Nuggitz cube by Sunshine designs. I stamped the background with Perfect medium another stamp by Sunshine designs. The rust piece was stamped with versa fine black and a Hero Arts stamp. I used black Brilliance for the edges and used clear embossing powder to give the piece a framed look. The circles were cut with my nesties.

I hope you like it...thanks for stopping by.
