Just Add Ink #502

Another CAS graduation card!  I am certainly getting some mileage out of this graduation cap stamp!  It has been in my stash for some time, but is currently living in my Misti!  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink-

I basically followed the sketch exactly, using up some scrap bits and pieces for the design. A little bit of bling from black glitter cardstock and some added dimension on my cap finish off the card.

My sentiment and cap were stamped with Intense Black ink.  I added in color with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. My cap was adhered with 3-D foam tape.

  12. I hope you don't mind... I totally stole this card from you LOL! I was asked to make a graduation card for a friend to give her nephew and the school colours happen to be green and gold (University of Regina). I loved your card so I replicated it! I will of course, give credit to you when I blog about it!
