TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge



Another Monday....Another one of MJ's wonderful Sketch Challenges. I can see this weeks sketch being used with a lot of sets I own. It's also a great sketch for color blocking.

I started out by cutting my Parisian Breeze Specialty Paper for my panels, then ran them through my Big Shot, using the Texturz Plates. I then rubbed my sanding block on the raised areas, which removed the top layer of paper, giving it more of a distressed look. Once these pieces were adhered to my Baja Breeze card stock, I used my Mat Pack, Piercing Tool and Chocolate Chip marker to add the Faux Stitching. The focal image is from Friends 24-7, stamped on Baja Breeze, cut with Circle Nestibilities, then layered on a larger Chocolate Chip panel. I stamped the bird again, and popped it up on top of the first one for some added dimension.

Details:
Stamps - Friends 24-7 (SU)
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Parisian Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Other - Mat Pack, Big Shot, Circle Nestabilities, Sponge Dauber, Dimensionals, 1/4" Circle Punch
Finished Size - 5-1/2" x 4-1/4"

Here's MJ's original sketch if you'd like to play along. Speaking of sketches/challenges...I'm excited to share with you that on Thursday's I'll be posting Challenges as part of Kerry's Three Clovers Thursday Inspiration Team!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Phew! glad to see that the Earth is still spinning and you participated!!!! hahahahahahaha!

I love this. That is such a great bird and I love the colors you chose. I thought I already commented on this but I don't see it? Oh well, no idea, I am losing my mind lately. Thanks for playing, as always!
