RetroSketches #32


Happy World Card Making Day!  Have you all been finding time to get your craft on?  Hopefully I'll be spending most of the day working on some special orders I have and maybe squeeze in a challenge or two.  For now though I'm excited to announce that I'm a co-Headliner at RetroSketches for the month of October!  I know, I know - I always profess to have a sketch allergy but I figured this would be a good challenge for myself.  Not to mention the fact that the RetroSketches team consists of three super talented ladies who I'm proud to play along with:



I used a paint sample for the orange bars and the image and sentiment are Paper Smooches.  What do you see in this sketch?  Can't wait to see your creations!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Kraft) PTI,  (Island Indigo) SU
Stamps:  (Chair & sentiment from Vogue Abode) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Twine:  (Mandarin) The Twinery
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida

Love it! And you KNOW playing along will really stretch you crafty-wise. Seriously, you know how much I used to hate sketches! A good one goes a long way, though :)
Love the paper piecing & the perfect twine pop!

Ooh, congrats and I love this card! As soon as I saw it, I thought a paint chip would be perfect for the bars... and that's what you used! My WCMD was taken up making (Canadian) Thanksgiving dinner. Need to get back to the crafting!
