SKETCH 39: CANVAS!


Yep, that's right... We're using CANVAS for this week's Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge. :) Cuz we are daring and fearless like that.

For my card, I chose a base of SU Almost Amethyst. Most people say they don't like this color, but it really makes me happy! And it works beautifully with BG Sugar Rush! I layered 1.25" squares from the Sugar Rush paper pad onto the standard-sized card base, then placed a strip of Sticky Strip across the middle. I pressed on some pretty Pink Frost Sparkle Fibers....these are so much fun! I made a lollipop-style flower using the same patterned papers, and I embellished the center with a PTI button and twine. I incorporated the canvas with the sentiment, using a NEW Basic Grey Sugar Rush Canvas Tag. These are self-stick. (And they REALLY stick!) So simple!

I sometimes like to make very similar cards, using the same materials, but change things up a bit. I just got some SU Heart Treat Cups, so I really was itching to use one here... ;)



Be sure to check out each of the creations made by our talented Limelight design team!

The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate your favorite CANVAS!! You can use one of these tags, some actual canvas, a canvas-print stamp...whatever goes! (If you don't have any canvas, we hope you'll play along anyway!)
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC039.

**Post a comment with a l
ink to your card right here on the challenge post by Sunday, January 24, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
**PRIZE ~ One lucky winner will receive one package of Basic Grey Origins Canvas Tags!!

Hi Mandy! Sadly no canvas in my stash, but I pulled out my canvas background stamp. Here is what I did today. I think the gray and gloomy weather has seeped into my card. I think I need to drag out some bright colors for my next card!

Rosemary said...

Another great sketch! Excited I actually had some canvas to use on my card! Here it is:
