AMYS19 Old Fashioned Lilac's

This is the challenge card we did yesterday while in chat. It is one of Amy's Sketches. I found this one harder to do. Not sure why but I did. I also ended up changing the direction of the sketch. Anyone can do the challenge. If you do you can load it to your blog or SCS using her code AMYRS19. Be sure and post to Amy's blog under the sketch so she knows.

So what I did was found some old fashioned designer paper, this is what a friend of mine sent to me Sharron. Thanks Sharron I am really getting the use out of those papers you sent me. Love them.

Supplies Needed:
Designer Paper of choice
Choc. Chip and Very Vanilla Card stock
Old Olive & Cranberry Crisp Ink
Blossoms Abound Stamp set

Cut Very Vanilla card stock at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, fold in half for a card that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Cut designer paper at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and layer on main card. Cut two strips of designer paper at 1 1/2 x 3 1/2. Mount this to choc chip cut at 1 3/4 x 3 3/4. Both pieces should be the same.
Cut Very Vanilla at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2.
Stamp image on Very Vanilla. Beings this is a two step stamp set. With the first half of your lilac stamp in Cranberry Crisp ink and stamp off once on scrap paper, then stamp on card stock. Take the next half and stamp in ink and go directly to your card and line up images and stamp. This gives a two tone effect with one color of ink. With the leaves use Old Olive and stamp your main vein in that and onto you card. Lining up as best you can. Then with the leaves you stamp off once on a scrap paper then on to the card. Again the two done effect without using more ink colors. Mount this to a piece of choc. chip cut at 2 1/8 x 4.
Mount pieces as shown in the sample.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We are getting snow today in Central MN. Don't think we will get much or that it will stay long. See you all tomorrow, hard to believe another month has gone by already.
