It's Thursday and that means it's time for another challenge at Pals Paper Arts! We're hosting a Sketch Challenge (PPA57) this week and the PPA Design Team and this week's Featured Artist, Martha Stewart, have created some gorgeous cards to inspire you to play along!
When I designed this sketch, I had versatility in mind! The clean and simple layout can be easily dressed up or dressed down. You could even flip it sideways or upside down for an entirely different look!
Make it work! For my card, I chose to make the beautiful Designer Series Paper work for me! It sets the tone for this simple yet elegant card! The striking flowers in the patterned paper really pop against the contrasting colors.
Quick and easy! Minimal stamping required! This card was created in less than 15 minutes! If you have a great layout and a beautiful patterned paper to feature, all you need to add is a simple stamped sentiment and a few added embellishments (optional)!
What are you waiting for? Check out the exciting submissions by the PPA Design Team plus, take a look at our recent blog makeover! Then get out your supplies and create a card using the featured sketch and upload your project via Inklinz before Tuesday, August 31st at 12:00 Noon CST. Who knows?!!! You might just be a Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick! I can't wait to see what you create!
