Introducing Fancy That

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink August countdown! 

Today's group post is all about the new Fancy That stamp sets Fancy That is exactly that... fancy!  These stunning outlined medallions make such fancy focal points and backgrounds with ease.  I'm quite certain you'll enjoy working with this set as much as I have.  Hope you like what I have to share with you today...
First up, the fancy focal point.  This is my simple card.  Simply stamped the outlined medallion in black ink and colored.
The coloring was done in an ombre fashion.  Transitioning from green on the outer edges to blue in the center, using the Copic markers pictured above.
I finished the card off by stamping a sentiment, trimming the medallion panel into two pieces and then embellishing with a coordinating button.
Second, the fancy background.
Here's a before shot I took to give you an idea of how I built the pattern.  I rotated every other medallion to create a sort of interlocking effect, carefully paying attention to the placement and color of each impression.
And the after close up shot.
This sentiment is from the soon to be released Birthday Classics: September stamp set.

Well, that concludes my look at Fancy ThatJust remember... this stamp set and other product I've used today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th
