Damask Designs



It's all Susan's fault. One Saturday in a Sketch For You To Try post, she was gushing and obsessing over Papertrey's then-new Damask Designs set and anxiously awaiting for it to be back in stock. Of course, I had to see what the fuss was all about. And you know how it is with Papertrey ... I couldn't stop at just one set, or just one new paper color, or just one style of ribbon. It had been a long while since my last Papertrey purchase, so I was overdue. (That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.)

Anyhoo, the beautiful Damask Designs, designed by Dawn McVey, finally saw some ink this past weekend. I created the background using Guide Lines Two, also by Papertrey. The grid is stamped in SU's white craft ink on kraft card stock, then the circles are filled with white craft and one of SU's pinks (I think Regal Rose craft?). Last I added in the tiny black images. The final touch was to dot the circle centers with a tiny dab of Stardust Stickles. The focal image is from Damask Designs, and is stamped in Versafine Onyx black and then heat embossed with black detail embossing powder. The ribbon is by Papertrey, and the punched border was done with the Fiskars A-Fleur punch. I trimmed down the background panel by 1/8" on both sides, then edged it in white ink before adhering it to a Kraft card base.

Have an awesome day!
