Watt's Up?

Here's my card for this week's Deconstructed Sketch.  I stretched the sketch to make it fit an A2 card, but I think I still managed to get most of the elements represented.

I used one of the lightbulb images from the Mama Elephant Lights Out set for my focal image.  The bulb is stamped in yellow and outlined with black.  I used gray ink for a silvery look on the base of the bulb.  The line the bulb is hanging from was drawn with a fine tip pen and a ruler.  I stamped the "watt's up?" sentiment along the line in the same gray ink I used for the bulb's base.

The image is layered over a gray panel and a strip of chevron patterned paper arranged on a light blue panel. Before I added the image on top, I wrapped some yellow baker's twine around the panels and secured it with a bow.  The finished panel is adhered to a gray mat, then to a yellow card base.

Materials Used:
Lights Out stamp set (Mama Elephant); Memento Dandelion and Tuxedo Black inks, Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink (Tsukineko); Steel Grey and Lemon Drop cardstock (My Favorite Things); Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Park Bench 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants); yellow baker's twine (The Twinery)
