Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SCS

Since it's Wednesday today, that means it's Sketch Challenge day at SplitCoast Stampers. Today's sketch looked fun and easy, so I thought I'd give it a try!

My Caroline let me borrow her "Sew Suite" set which will be available beginning next week in the Occasions Mini. I swiped her "Sweet Stitches" DSP too with the promise of creating some samples for the Studio. I hope she likes what I've come up with so far!

For today's card, I stamped the bobbin and pin cushion on Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Grey Ink (it's waterproof) and used ink squished into the lid of the ink pad and my Aqua Painters to colour in the images. The little pin cushion is hiding behind the spool of thread thanks to the masking technique.

I punched my image out using my large scallop circle punch and it was adhered to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

My card base is a piece of 5 1/2 X 8 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo scored and folded at 4 1/4". The next layer up is a piece of 4 X 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White. The patterned paper is from the same sheet, I just cut and flipped it over. Have I mentioned that I LOVE the fact that our DSP is double sided???

The little ruler from the "Sew Suite" set was stamped in Melon Mambo Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. It actually goes to a 12" measure (but is only about 6" long), but I cut it at 9 1/2" to make it fit the card.

A length of Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon hides the seam between the two pieces of DSP.

What do you think?
