Stamping 411 sketch with Long Fellows hostess set...


This is my take on the Stamping 411 Sketch 168 this week. I started with a Crumb Cake card and added a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Garden Green card stock that was covered with VersaMark ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder after using a bone folder to freehand the lines (Faux Alligator technique).

I inked up the alligator from Long Fellows (a Stampin' Up! Level 2 hostess set - FREE with a $300 order) in Garden Green Craft ink and clear embossed again. Then I used an aqua painter and Garden Green pad to color the gator. The final touch is the button (Holiday Mini) with 1/8" Early Espresso taffeta knotted in it. I adhered it with dimensionals. Thanks for visiting!
