Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 183-Sock it to Me
It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I stretched the sketch a little from its square shape to a standard A2 size, but still managed to include all of the elements.
Sock it to Me set from The Cat’s Pajamas as the focal image for my card. The monkey’s colored with Copic markers and the sentiment is stamped next to the image in Versafine's Satin Red ink—my favorite kind of ink for a nice, bold sentiment.
I attached the colored sock monkey image to a red dotted panel, then covered the left edge with a strip of kraft cardstock. I edged the kraft strip with a brown dotted scallop border made with TCP’s CutUps Queen of Hearts border die, then added a red grosgrain ribbon strip on top.
To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
