SQSC02 Victorian Beau Chateau

Welcome to the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge Wednesday!  The Stampin’ Queens Design Team is a new team devoted to bringing you wonderful sketches with layers!  This weeks’ sketch features a tag, scallop circle background, and Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Taking cues from the fabulous and fun new Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (#122357), today’s Sketch Challenge Card uses Blushing Bride, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla Card Stock. 

Today I’ve complemented it with images from three stamp sets:

  • Creative Elements (Clear Mount #122647)
  • Flores Suaves (Wood Mount #112193)
  • Kindness Matters (Clear Mount #122902)

And of course, you can order these exclusive stamp sets and other color coordinating supplies at my online stampin up store!

And Basic Jewel Pearls were added to tag, stamped and layered butterfly, and along the edges of the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (DSP) as well.

Finally, Versamark (watermark) Ink was used to enhance the Vintage Wallpaper embossed impression on the scallop circle, and to stamp the borders along top and bottom edges of Blushing Bride Card Stock.
