Beate’s weekend sketch challenge #96 September 4, 2009

Happy Friday Stampers!!!  It is time for another one of Beate’s wsc.  You can see the sketch here and participate this weekend.

I’ve had this oh so cute Chic Boutique stamp set for about 2 months now and haven’t used it.  I thought I’d give it a try this weekend.  I really like the images in the set.   Very oh la la-ish!

The images were stamped on Watercolor paper and Kaleidoscope DSP in Jet Black Stazon Ink.  Used Circle Scissor Plus tool to cut out my circle.  Using Mat Pack, I added some piercings throughout the theme of the card.  I had to add buttons…it seems only appropriate to coordinate with the stamped images.   And that sentiment!  Gotta love those words. 

Want more wsc inspiration?  The wsc girls will surely inspire you with their creations:  Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, and Sharon.
