...A Sketch For You To Try Card

This was my submission for today's Sketch For You To Try at Jen del Muro's blog. I started with a Kraft Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Always Artichoke Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Manchester Designer Series Paper pack, and the center Kraft Cardstock panel was embossed with one of SU's Texture Plates Kit #4 called Distressed. The second and fourth layers were pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The Watercolor Paper focal panel was created using Spellbinders' Classic Oval Nestabilities and the Sizzix Big Shot. The image was from the Stampendous Changito line called "Piggyback"...I also drew a line to separate the floor from the ceiling with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. The monkeys were stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then colored with an Aquapainter and Classic Ink Pads. The only embellishment I used was Baja Breeze Corduroy Button along with a piece of Linen Thread.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by again, and I will see you tomorrow with another card. I have alot of cards to get finished before we head out of here tomorrow...plus I have to pack all of my stuff back up for the trip home. We have had such a blast here at Home Harvest Retreat, and we would like to thank Fran Randolph and her husband for their hospitality...and especially the FOOD! OMG...can Fran cook! Tonight's meal was worth the trip whether we got any stamping done or not! :)
