Sweet Sunday Sketch #1


I know, it's not Sunday, but I was blurfing and found this sweet sketch from "the sweetest thing" via Nancy Riley's blog:

Sweet Sunday Sketch #1 I got some new toys today, some punches and DP, so I decided to play.  I had my DP cut to the proportions shown here, then decided to punch the edges with my MS eyelet punch.  It went downhill from there!  That messed up my proportions, but I didn't want to waste the paper, so I went with it anyway! 


I was rather surprised at how "bright" the SU Raspberry Tart DP is---it is more of an unripe strawberry color to me--but again, I went with it!  I wanted to use the new Sellabration set, Polka Dot Punches, but they were too big to put three flowers on, so I only used two!  I punched them with my new 5-petal flower punch, but trimmed them down and mounted them on some solid cardstock and added some leaves with the same punch.  Talk about creative license!  I hope it's all okay!  I will need to get used to this paper--it is bold, to say the least! 

  • Stamps:  Best Yet (ret), Polka Dot Punches
  • Paper:  WW, Pretty in Pink, Cameo Coral, Raspberry Tart DP
  • Ink:  Cameo Coral, Ruby Red
  • Acc:  MS pucnh, Taffeta Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, 1/2" circle punch, dimensionals, dauber
