PPA168- Sketch 4 You

Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge--a sketch! I love this simple sketch and I tried to keep my items simple, as well. This card came together so quickly and it doesn't really require much explanation. The one thing I did that was creative, I think, was to cut the Trick Or Treat stamp from a circle punch instead of the shaped punch that I don't own! 

Another thing I came up with is to take my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and make dots all around the word "OR." I just thought there should be a teeny bit more black in that area. The entire stamp from "Tags 4 You" was colored with Stampin' Write Tangerine Tango and Basic Black Markers instead of using ink pads.

One last creative thing I did was die my Whisper White Baker's Twine black! I just used my Stampin' Write Marker twisting and turning while coloring over a piece of scrap paper. I let it dry before tying it onto my Very Vintage Button.

I hope you notice the Sweater Weather DSP under my elements. It really looks like texture, but it's just a photo-like image--very clear!

Hi Patti! The houndstooth paper look fabulous but I adore the "black" bakers twine! Great tip as it make the button pop!

Margaret Moody said...

I love your card, Patti! Love how you punched your sentiment using the circle punch instead! It really adds some nice interest. Great idea too to add the black dots too! A tiny touch with a lot of great impact!
