Ideal for a Chess fan

  
When we recieved our stamps for making samples I recieved the Music Fanfare which I love but with my Hubbys birthday around the corner thought the Art of Chess would be ideal for him.
This is an 8x8 card backed with paper. I cut out a square from acetate and used as a mask along the sides as a suggestion of a board. The chess pieces are stamped in black and brown and the edges are distressed. The centre image is stamped with Brilliance Tiramisu and clear embossed. I turned the ink pad as it isn't as big as the stamp. The shading around the sun is Antique Linen Distress Ink so the white of the palace stands out. I mounted onto brown and black then finished with a sentiment.

Keep popping back as there will be more inspiration coming from the Design Team.

  2. A fabulous male card, makes a change from fishing or football! I like the way you've added the large chess pieces at the sides.

  4. Your turning of the inkpad that way round has worked beautifully with the perspective & really gives such an impression of depth to the whole. I love your use of blacks & browns with the whites & creams. Quite striking.
