A Sketchy Change of Pace

If you happen to visit here once in a while, you may have noticed that I am what they call a "clean and simple" stamper. I don't tend to go for lots of layers or embellishments. However, after a month of guest designing for the CASology challenge blog combined with the current one layer challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, I felt the need to break out of the box a little! Layers, papers, embellishments, calling my name...


I decided to use the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches -- especially since my friend and snarky sister Jessi just happens to be this week's sketch artist! No stamping on this (although the inside sentiment is stamped), just lots of Graphic 45 Typography paper. Of the three small tags, the middle is a chipboard piece to match the flourishes on the main panel, while the other two are die cuts. 
I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's current Anything Goes challenge. 

Supplies: Stampin' Up basic black cardstock, Graphic 45 Typography patterned papers and chipboard element, Simon Says Stamp postage stamp die, Spellbinders Page Maps Charmed, I'm Sure dies, Twinery marigold twine, Recollections black half-pearls, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

You have transitioned to layers beautifully with this one. Your colours are lovely and the black framing perfect.

You know this style is more up my alley. Love the tags and twine. And of course, the sentiment is so true.
