CAS(E) This Sketch #21


Welcome to Week 21 of CAS(E) This Sketch!  Take a look at this week's sketch designed by Lisa Arana:  



It's not often I look at a sketch and have an image immediately come to mind but this time the first thing that popped into my head was a typewriter.  I also knew I had some patterned papers with letters in circles buried somewhere and after a bit of digging I found this Cosmo Cricket paper - perfect!  I did some tone on tone stamping to the red strip for a bit of texture, popped up the typewriter and voila!  What do you see in these shapes?  Play along and show us!  Check out the rest of the design team cards and then get to work!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, River Rock)  Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Circa 1934) Cosmo Cricket
Stamps:  (Typewriter and sentiment) Hero Arts, (Cane background) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

Yep, I can see the typewriter idea too, great choice of papers as well. I'm not sure I liked the sketch at first .... It's growing on me though :0)
