Faux Embellishment Stamps - OLW#5

So Susan has done it again! She has issued a GREAT challenge that is really going to make us think outside of our typical creative 'box'.
This time, she wanted us to use faux embellishment stamps that we have. Well, my first thought was to use Faux Ribbon by Papertrey Ink. However, then I remembered this stamp set by Close to My Heart that I received from a friend. It has a number of these photo turns, photo corners, hinges, and buckles in it - PERFECT!!!!
I used a piece of transparency to sponge the circle with blue ink. Then, I added the photo clip stamping it with Versamark and embossing it with black. Finally, the sentiment and stars were added with black ink!
(the sentiment says "To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world ~ Jennifer Billings)
Supplies: Stamps - Accents, etc. (Close to My Heart), Out on a Limb and Out on a Limb Additions (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Ink - Buckaroo Blue (Stampin' Up!), Black, Versamark; Other - transparency, black embossing powder, sponge, corner chomper (We R Memory Keepers).
So I am totally going to keep checking back to Susan's post to see what everyone does with this challenge!!

Photo turns are one of my favorite scrapbooking items..had no idea there was a stamp like that! Love the boldness of the turn with the softness of the blue and the sentiment. TFS :)
