Paper Players Sketch Challenge 2


Yeehaw!  Lesley has a great sketch for us to play with this week over at Always Playing with Paper!  I managed to play with some new SU goodies before I left!  First, here’s the sketch:

Sketch 2

And here’s my card:


This uses Out West along with the new Love Letter DP; my old faithful Sanded background stamp provided a rustic backdrop.  I am thrilled that SU came out with this set.  It makes a great masculine card, and I love the artwork style.  The images were all stamped in Riding Hood Red, but before stamping, I went over some of the details with a Chocolate Chip marker…I love the effect of it!


I lightly stamped Sanded on my main panel and hat as well.  I trimmed a wide striped grosgrain ribbon down to a more manageable size and fringed the edges; the three little brads have a little linen thread entwined around just for a little more interest.

Now gallop on over to the Always Playing with Paper blog to find out all the details and to see the other Paper Players’ creations!  And play along!  It’s a fun sketch and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!  Oh, I almost forgot to show you the inside sentiment!  Yeehaw!  Another new set!

  2. OOh, I love this! I love the distressed worn look and the paper is fabulous with this great image!

  3. You always have some of the coolest ideas!! I love how you accented the stamp with color before stamping, and what you did with that ribbon really lends a western feel to this great card! YeeHaw, wait until momacow sees this one!!

  4. WOW!! What a great man card this is! Great take on the sketch!

  5. Boy do I love the colors in this card. What you did with the ribbon and brads are more LeAnne great idea. You must have a million. I think you could write a book.

  6. Really like the set you used and the colors. Is Crumb Cake ink used on the sanded and the skull inside? Just wondering what it looked like. tfs

  10. Oh, look at YOU, you sassy lil' cowpoke! This card is ADORABLE! I wasn't too keen on that set, but seeing your fantastic card is making me re-think my initial thoughts... YOU are SO gooooood! And now, may I just say.....
