It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for another challenge from The Pals Paper Arts. Yippee! This week, we are sharing a sketch from Nicole Watt – so many fun things you can do with this sketch. I chose to go simple and understated. Here’s my card:
- Filling the Void. When a sketch calls for a very large panel (as is the case with this sketch – or it would be odd for me to even bring it up in this post), there several options to fill that large space. You can fill the void with beautiful patterns (patterned Designer Series Paper or texture-embossed paper). You chose to fill the void with a large, stamped image – this Nativity Scene was my first and only choice.
- White Embossing Powder. Because you read my blog every day and because you read every word I write (How do I know? Yesterday. Penguins.), you already know how I feel about White Stampin’ Emboss Powder – I absolutely love it! I can’t think of any other way to honor the beauty of this stamp set. I also love how it really pops against the deep, rich Blackberry Bliss.
- Color Combination. When I discover a combination of colors that makes my heart go “pitter patter,” I love to share it with you. In this case, the rich depth of Blackberry plays really well against the mature pop of energy in Old Olive. The white really stands out against both of these colors. If you feel the same as I, please feel free to print this combination or save them for future reference:
Stamp Sets: The Newborn King, Petite Pairs Papers: Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Whisper White Accessories: White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Large Oval punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you will pop over to the Pals Paper Arts challenge to check out the designs by the other amazing artists.
Thank you for stopping by today!
I’ll Be Back. I’ll be back later this morning with information about the new Holiday Catalog. Woo hoo!
