Whoa! Sorry for getting side tracked…

Our Challenge this week is a SKETCH created by design team member Deborah Anton – It is a great sketch on a long card (I used a 8.5″ X 8.5″ piece of cardstock folded in half for a 4.25″X 8.5″ card base.)

Long sketch

I colored my little guy up with Copics (YG03, YG63, YG7, R02, R05, R08) Then did a fun doodle border and the “Stipple Shadow” technique from a DTC Sunday Showcase.

Hambo FlytrapFor my card background, I used some of my new Papertrey Ink “It’s Official Patterned Paper” and coordinating cardstocks – Simply Chartreuse, and Dark Chocolate. I originally thought about using the sentiment involving “My Plant ate it…” and decided to replace the sketch’s lower left-hand fold with a bite taken out of the papers. I changed sentiments but thought it still worked so I kept it. (I used my SU scallop punch for that.) I used my spellbinders circles for my sentiment.

Since the sketch calls for Washi, and I only had one that would “kind of” work, I just decided to use my pattern paper pack and my coordinating cardstocks (which I ran through embossing folders – background lines which I tilted and mustache both by Darice.) I tore the strips to look like Washi. What do you think??

A little twine and Voila! FUN! FUN! FUN! Challenge this week!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
