First up tonight is a sketch challenge from SUDSOL. I was very intrigued by the layout, and decided to play along. Here is what I came up with.
The original sketch had an oval in the middle. I couldn't think of an easy way to do that (since the Coluzzle is retired), so I opted for rectangle. I started with the Sweet Pea DSP stack and picked two that I thought would go together. Then coordinated all colors from there. The card base is Sahara Sand, followed by a layer of Taken with Teal. I cut the DSP pieces to layer over leaving some of the Teal showing through. On the edge of the top and bottom outside edge I added 3 5/16" Jumbo brads in Chocolate Chip. I used the Mat Pack for perfect placement. I also used the Ticket Corner punch on the outside corners of the layers.
The main image is stamped using the Cheep Talk set. Not one I go to very often, but it seemed like it would work and came out OK.
Happy weekend all!
