Sketch Challenge: Clean and Simple (CAS)


Here's what I made for Kurtis's sketch challenge this week on Stamp TV. The three hearts were cut using a Classic Heart Nestabilitie. Greeting from "A Charmed Life"(I just love this font) is stamped in Memento Black, CS is Gina K Pure Luxury White, and DP is Emily's Rich and Shabby" Digital. I used a black pen and piercing template to extend the dot dot dot to either sie to match the sketch better and add more detail. Originally I was going to make this a single layer card with the cuts through the front and DP inside so it would show through (much more CAS!), but I forgot to take one of my CS shims out of my Cuttlebug sandwich when I went to emboss a square on the front to frame it up and it cut through. So here is "Plan B"! The white layer is popped up over the DP and a half back pearl is attached to the center of each heart with a glue dot.
I hope you'll play along in the sketch challenge, you have until 8 AM CST on Thursday 3/26 to upload a card for a chance at a free set of stamps!
