We have a new Sketch Challenge (PPA153) at Pals Paper Arts for you to try! Our Resident Artists have been busy creating papercrafting works of art using the featured sketch as a starting point! We hope you'll give the sketch a try and play along with us!
When it's time to wrap up and keep warm or take a lazy, mid-afternoon nap, my covering of choice is always a quilt! Playing with the Honeycomb embossing folder and the mix of patterned papers to create the background, reminded me of the many colorful, hand-pieced quilts my great-grandmother lovingly made for my family when I was growing up! To complement the multi-colored hexagonal pattern, I added color coordinated papers, a stamped flower embellishment and bit of Baker's twine! Eventhough it took some time to snip out all those hexagon pieces, it was a lot of fun! I hope you like my card as much as I do!
Now it's your turn! You can use any brand of papercrafting supplies to make your card! Get out your supplies and play along! I can't wait to see what you create!
