SSSC72 - Artistic Etchings

It's Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Today I have two cards that I've created using Karen's fantastic sketch, both of them using the sneak peek stamp set Artistic Etchings from the up coming 2010-2011 Stampin' Up Idea Book & Catalog.  The crown for this card was stamped separate, cut out and pop dotted and I added three gems to the top of it.  The medallion directly under the crown was stamped in Riding Hood Red ink with the other medallions in the row stamped off to appear a lighter shade of Riding Hood Red.

Supplies: Artistic Etchings, Perfect Punches, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Ribbon, Pinking Hearts border punch, Wide Oval punch, Small Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Gems, Pop dots.  Colors: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Kraft, Vanilla.

For this second card I turned the sketch and used the Eiffel Tower stamp from the Artistic Etchings set along with a different color palette and some distressing.

Supplies: Artistic Etchings, Wide Oval punch, Scallop Trim border punch, Scallop Oval punch, Small circle punch, Pearls, Ribbon, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Boho Blossoms punch, Brad, Pop dots.  Colors: Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum.
