Today it’s time for a design team creation for TSOT231.  I’ve used Endless Thanks again.  It’s fun to see how many different ways you can use the same stamp set.  For the challenge this week, there was a sketch and then the directions to use some watercoloring.  I sort of forgot that last bit until I was almost done with my card.  Oops!!

Here’s what I did with Endless Thanks today:

Endless Thanks for TSOT231

I started with a base of Pear Pizzazz followed by a layer of Pear Pizzazz.

Next, I went to work on my tag and circle images using Endless Thanks.  The fronds are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and the flowers in Calypso Coral.

The 1 1/2″ circle has had the edge and most of the surface daubed with Pear Pizzazz so that it both stands out and is not as stark.

The Ornate Tag was then given a wash of Pear Pizzazz ink that has been diluted.  The tag was then finished with a Calypso Coral outline.

Gold embossed fronds that have been randomly stamped on the Pear Pizzazz layer are complimented by two strips of Gold Sequin Trim.

And the Gold embossed Vellum banner finishes the card.
