Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #27

Happy Friday!!!! Where does the week go??? It is indeed time for another fabulous Inkspiration Challenge... and today it's SKETCH time!!!

You are in luck today.. because I'm running a wee bit late so you wont have to wade through all my chatter before I get to my creation ... well ok apart from this little bit of chatter.. hahaha.

Ok so onto the challenge. Here is my card for today:-

And here is Keesh's sketch for you to play along with:-

I have to apologise because I just couldn't seem to get a GOOD photo of this card.. .I'll have to have another go tomorrow!! So Sorry about that. The stamp set is my Papertrey Ink Blooming Button Bits.. and I've stamped the image in Versamark then added some clear embossing powder and given it a blast with my heat tool.. then sponged it with Baja Breeze ink... the photo unfortunately isn't really showing the Emboss Resist.. very well... so you may need to get your nose right up to the screen to really see it... hahaha

I've had another Faux Diva moment and attacked a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock with my bone folder to creation a Faux Suede panel and also added some Close to Cocoa DSP for the other panel. Rather than use an 'oval' as per the sketch I've used a little creative license and added some GORGEOUS satin ribbon and very cheekily copied the little tag that was on my GORGEOUS Convention gift from Fiona, by tracing it and cutting it out... I know, I know.. I PROMISE I will be purchasing the Tiny Tag Set and matching punch ASAP!!! hahaha
The buttons are Baja Breeze and I've added a little pink bling to mix too.

I hope you like it and can actually see past the not so good photo. :D

Thankyou for the personal faux suede tutorial SJ!!! Btw fellow stampers, the way this effect is achieved, is totally NOT how I imagined!!! Let's all lobby SJ for a video tutorial!!! (or at least LOTS of pictures!) hehe.
