I know I've said this many times before, but here it goes again .... "River Rock is impossible to photograph!". Sometimes it looks like Old Olive, and in this case it looks like Creamy Caramel ... at least on MY computer screen ... go figure???? Anyway, this IS RIVER ROCK !!!!
Today's SCS Featured Stamper (FS62) features the gallery of Jodi, aka Kharmagirl. Jodi is fabulously talented, and super sweet (she always leaves the nicest comments for me!). HERE is Jodi's card I chose to case. I changed the color combo and the stamp set, keeping the same layout. I picked up Jodi's Basic Black, her wording on the background piece of the main image, her double ribbon, and her three brads.
To achieve the word background on the Whisper White piece, I stamped the image from Great Grads four times (corner to corner) in Jet Black Staz-On using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, then cut to the size I needed. The "graduate medallion" was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On onto River Rock CS, the "G" was punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, the "graduate" circle was punched with the Scallop Circle Punch, then a Basic Black CS layer was punched with the Scallop Circle Punch and offset from the River Rock piece.
Behind the black brads are two circles ... one 1/4" River Rock and 1/2" Basic Black. The sentiment was punched with the Word Window Punch, then two pieces of Basic Black Word Window Punch were layered behind.
