Sketch Challenge

When I saw the SCS sketch challenge last night, I wasn't very enthusiastic. It seemed a bit blah to me. I looked at it again this morning - and thought that it wasn't too bad.

Downstairs to the dungeon I go.

The long panel was perfect for one of my new sets: Out on a Limb by Papertrey - and I've been dying to use it.

Okay... colors. I liked the idea of the 3 panels in the background being pieces of dp, so I flipped through my bags of SU dp. *I cut my 12x12 SU dp into 6x6 squares - a little easier to store and I don't feel AS bad using it.* I finally settled on Apple Cider dp. And decided to use Really Rust and River Rock - the 2 colors on the piece I picked. I wanted another color, so I decided on Wild Wasabi.

I really like how it turned out, especially with the black glaze pen marking some of the dots on the dp. The dp, main image, River Rock layer and card base are all sponged with Really Rust.

Stamps: Papertrey - Out on a Limb. Paper: River Rock, Really Rust, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Apple Cider dp. Ink: Really Rust, River Rock, Wild Wasabi. Accessories: ribbon, stapler, sponge, dimensionals, Black Sakura Glaze pen.

Sara, I love this card. I got an email that PaperTrey shipped my order yesterday (I really wanted this set!) so maybe I can start playing with it at the end of the week. Great job with the sketch and picking out the color combo. Thanks for sharing.
