Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge


Hello there! Are you ready for another Pals Paper Arts Challenge? This week we have a fun little sketch challenge fro you from our lovely Margaret Moody
Here are the DEEtails:
Funny thing... For someone who loves to add banners to cards, I actually had a lot of difficulty with this challenge! I decided to NOT do banners and once I pulled out my feathers, the card sort of fell into place. I I started with an image from Fine Feathers which I stamped in Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake, and finally one embossed in gold. Love! It's hard to tell from this photograph, but the Whisper White background was stamped with the Hello, Doily image in VersaMark and embossed for a delicate tone on tone look. The image was perfectly stamped imperfectly (I couldn't do it again if I tried) and it works! I stamped the sentiment from Chalk Talk on some Basic Black card stock with a little bit of chalk effect. I punched holed on the sides of my ovals and tied on some White Baker's Twine. I adhered everything to a Crisp Cantaloupe DSP background.

Here's a closer look...

Won't you stop by the Pals Paper Arts blog and check out the fabulous work from our Resident Artists? Then try your hand at Margaret's sketch... Will you be using banners? Or a fun alternative? Can't wait to see your creation! :)
