Beate's Weekend Sketch #17

Pin It This is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I had trouble deciding which stamps to use for this one. I thought about what I hadn't used in a while and thought the Changito stamps by Stampendous would work! I just love this little monkey playing the guitar. The sentiment is by A Muse and the patterned paper is Basic Grey Phat Chance and Pherris Wheel from the Phresh & Phunky Collection. I was resisting the urge to make this card square. There just seemed to be too much space. . .especially on top. Then I added the faux stitching and the circles with the brads to go with the patterned paper and it evened out the card a bit. Check out the cards that Lori, Jenn and Sharon have created too! They are ALL awesome! So, head on over to Beate's blog and give the sketch challenge a try! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Changito Guitar by Stampendous, sentiment by A Muse Art Stamps; Paper- pink, green by The Paper Company, Whisper White, DCWV chocolate, Basic Grey Phat Chance and Pherris Wheel from the Phresh & Phunky Collection; Ink- Basic Black; Accessories- Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stump, green grosgrain, paper piercer, Old Olive marker, small oval punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Making Memories brads, Circle Coluzzle.
