S & S Sketch Challenge #140

Sunday means Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge.  This week is #140 and here is the sketch we are to start with.
And here is what I came up with.

I kind of cheated.  I just used one black panel and added two pieces of some alcohol ink paper I had in my stash.  I thought the colors went pretty well with the background panel which is from a SU 6 x 6 pad that I received as part of some blog candy.  The smaller hearts are from a MS border punch and the larger ones are from a Sizzix die.  The sentiment is from Studio G.  I just used my wavy cutter on the edges of the sentiment panels and I was done.
My day has been filled with food shopping and cooking for both tonight and for  company we are having over tomorrow night so not  too much time is being spent in my craft room today.  I do love to cook too, so it's not a bad day at all.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  I always appreciate seeing you all here.

  1. It's not cheating! It's how you perceived the sketch, and that's what makes us crafters :) I love how you created 2 panels with that beautiful alcohol ink paper you make! The background looks great and so does the sentiment!
    Enjoy your company and your cooking. I've been in the kitchen most of the day too! It must be something in the air :)

  6. Great background. I am going to try that "cheating thing" on my next card using this sketch. (He he) I like the sentiment too. Thanks for sharing your great creation.

  8. Donna,

    I love your alcohol ink paper. It is so pretty. You're absolutely right that it is a perfect complement to the background paper. And, your little wavy edges are the perfect finishing touch.
