Card Sketch with Serigraph Technique

It is card sketch time at one of my favourite Yahoo Groups Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps.  I wanted to do a technique with this sketch and I decided on the serigraph technique that I found on Split Coast Stampers web site.

I used Mike’s mosaic frame stamp and used three colours of distressed inks to colour the rectangle that I cut from the frame to make the sketch pattern and the vertical stripes. I added the pattern to an embossed background that I inked the edges with one of the distressed inks. 

The pattern made a very pretty simple card I think.  The frame stamp from Mike’s collection I think is one of the most versatile stamps.

Come join the fun at enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.



  1. Beautiful card!!! I do not have that stamp- but love how it looks- love the technique too!

  2. I like the colours you used and they are very effective against the white. A very pretty card!
