Try A Sketch On Tuesday ~ Challenge #640

For me, there is not much better than paper crafting. On those dark and rainy days, here in the Pacific Northwest, I just love playing with paper and glue. If you're looking for some inspiration, we have a new challenge at Try A Sketch on Tuesday

Here's my card

For my card, I started with a 4 1/4" square white cardstock panel and a circle mask that I created from a large post-it note and a Sizzix circle die. I placed the mask on the cardstock and added color in the center with distress inks (picked raspberry, wilted violet, blueprint sketch) with oval ink blending brushes. I carefully removed the mask and added Perfect Pearls to the inked area. I then passed the panel with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level - Geometric embossing folder through my BigShot. I used a strip of purple cardstock from my stash to stamp the sentiment using Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments stamp set. I used a Memory Box Cherub Heart die to die cut the pink heart. I glued the pieces in place and adhered the panel to a white 4 1/4" square card base to complete my card.

We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch. You can show us by adding your creation to our gallery.
