Well here we are at another Diva Sketch challenge – where did this past week go?? I have been so busy with Stamp A Stacks and demonstrations it seems everyone wants a bit of Sale A Bration! This week is another busy one with three Stamp A Stacks happening.

Here is the sketch given to us by the lovely Alicia.

Just to keep up with tradition and not to shock my fellow Diva’s I have changed it a little – but not as much as other sketches I’ve done.

Here is my card for this challenge.

udisc17As you can see I’ve changed the orientation from portrait to landscape and started with a More Mustard card. I’ve used the swirls from Baroque Motifs in versamark and then chalked over the image. I am so happy to know that Baroque Motifs wont be retiring and I’m sure you are too!

I’ve then layered Textured Always Artichoke cardstock and Kraft cardstock to which stamped the En Francais stamp in versamark and chalked again. I’ve  torn around the edges of these two layers and then sponged caramel and cocoa ink around the edges of the kraft piece to give it a bit of a vintage look which I hope I achieved.

I dragged out my ever faithful Stamp-a-majig to do the rose buds from the Wild Rose stamp set. I love this tool and it makes two step (or three or four step) stamping very easy. The saying is from the Life Definitions stamp set which I love.

I have incorporated a few different techniques with this card which I will cover in my technique classes. Techniques used are two step stamping, tearing, vintage and chalk popping. So if you’d like to learn these techniques and more then register for my technique classes today!

Till next time …







  1. This is really pretty, Leonie. I like the tearing and aging techniques, and the roses you used. That is one of my all time favorite rose stamp sets. Great job!
