We've got a great sketch for you to play with at Pals Paper Arts this week! Please join me and my fellow Resident Artists at PPA and give this sketch a try!
I believe in making beautiful designer paper work for you and Afternoon Picnic DSP does just that on this card! I love all the different colors in the patchwork pattern and it looks so striking matted in Crushed Curry on a base of Coastal Cabana. I used the diagonal gradient stripes pattern to create the three horizontal bands. Using three different colors instead of one creates interest and draws your eye in to the focal point, the simple punched circle with the stamped sentiment and added flower embellishment. The clean, open white space of the circle and the visible band of Coastal Cabana around the perimeter helps balance out the mix of patterns and keeps them from being too overpowering.
Please let me know what you think! I love hearing from you and appreciate your comments! Now it's your turn to get out your supplies and try this sketch. You can use any brand of papercrafting supplies to make your card. I can't wait to see what you create!
