Artistic Etchings

January 28, 2011 | 4 comments


I’m back with another Sketch Challenge card to share with you all and this time it’s CPS 202 Part 1 from the Card Positioning Systems blog.

I’m not sure if I’ve participated in any challenges from this site before but as you’ve probably gathered, that is if you’ve been visiting my blog for a while, my aim for this year is to be more productive with my stamping and participate in as many challenges as I can. So far I think I’m doing pretty good. Just need to keep it up.

I’d love to find some more challenge blogs though, so if you know of any good ones please leave me a comment with a link to them. I’d really appreciate it.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this sketch at first, so I browsed through the IB&C to see what stamp sets I thought would work for the circle pieces and decided upon Artistic Etchings. Now I have used this set before but not a lot.

I went with the Love Letters DSP and coordinating colours for my theme and this is what I came up with.



I’m still not sure if it needs a sentiment/word stamped on the front or not.

What do you think??

Stamps: Artistic Etchings
Card: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Love Letters DSP
Inks: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Cutter Kit, Antique Brads, 1 3/4” Circle Punch.

Till next time…..
