Roxie has posted another fabamalajistically (I realize that this is not really a word, but, hey, it's my blog, so I'm allowed to make up new words, if I wanna!) cool sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I did get to check it out first thing this morning, but, currently, it appears that the site is having some technical issues because I cannot get into it. I'll upload my card there as soon as I'm able to get back in. Basically, we were to use nine shapes (circles, squares, or whatever we wanted) on our card and then use images/embellishments/whatever that could not be larger than those base shapes. Here's what I came up with:
Anywhoooo, I decided to make a 5 1/4" square card and use squares AND circles on mine. I don't have a square punch, so I cut up nine 1 1/4" squares on my Fiskar's tabletop paper cutter. I used my 1 1/4" circle punch to layer on top of the squares, and then, as you can see, I used a variety of stamps, punches, and buttons to go on top of the circle shapes.
The background designer paper is some of my favorite striped paper in SU's Rockabilly collection. It has this cool shiny sheen to it.
