Sketch For You To Try Challenge

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Hi there!
Today I am playing along with the Sketch For You To Try Challenge over at Reverse Confetti! 


Such a fun sketch, isn't it!?
Here is my take...

This sketch made me think of a well worn leather belt...weird! *LOL*
And that is exactly the look I went for!

So I made my "belt" with this dark brown core'dinations Kraft cardstock. All I needed to do was take off some of the dark brown with a sand paper. I die cut a small piece of blue vellum with the fringe die, rolled it up and there I have a tassel ;-) I fed the hemp cord in this brass button and popped it on the tassel!

I flipped over the core'dinations cardstock and die cut it with the chevron panel, matted that onto this orange patterned paper and trimmed off the corners with scissors. I picked this scrap cardstock for this lovely sentiment. I love blue and orange together!

For the background, I chose this old ledger looking paper from the This and That:Epic Day DSP pack. I love the vintage look of this paper, plus it had orange lines and some blue ;-)  I used the distress tool and a sand paper to make the edges look all torn and old. My pants were covered with fuzzy pieces when I was done! *LOL*

My notes...

Paper: Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Summer Smooches DSP, This and That: Epic Day DSP (SU!), Dark Brown Core'dinations Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Cardstock (Tim Holtz), Blue Vellum (Studio Calico)
