RetroSketches #35


Happy Saturday!  I'm back with the latest challenge from RetroSketches and this week the sketch is based on one of my cards (originally seen here).  I was in a patterned paper kind of mood when I worked on this and broke out some old Cosmo Cricket paper - the Everafter collection.  This is an older Hero Arts stamp set too but then I'm usually a bit behind on the trends!  :)  I can't wait to see how the sketch inspires you!  Happy crafting!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Everafter collection) Cosmo Cricket
Stamps:  (All from Sew Artsy) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko
