Ruined Church

Good afternoon.
Here is a card for just 1 challenges:
Cards for Men #6 - Sketch Challenge
The wonderful main image is from one of the new stamps from Stamp Addicts. It was stamped with black ink and embossed with fine clear powder to keep all the detail. This was tinted with Black Soot Distress Ink after being cut out with a Nestie. A second white Nestie shape was cut to provide a mat.

The base card is 5.25" square. Two different black and white papers - stripes and dots were used to make up the rest of the sketch. The dotty triangles were backed with white card to provide a border.

The sentiment (Elusive Images) was stamped in black ink on white card and the edges tinted after it was trimmed to size.

The black dots on the triangles are black, flat back, self adhesive gems
