Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 202-Tied up in Knots

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I flipped the sketch over on its side for this card that also doubles as an entry for this week's TCP Tuesday "anything goes" challenge.

I used the adorable bear image from the Tied Up set for my card. The bear’s colored with Copic markers and cut out, then adhered to the background panel with foam tape. I matted the image panel on a contrasting red cardstock piece, then added it to a piece of paisley patterned paper over a pale pink fishtail flag strip. The set’s “you have me all tied up in knots” sentiment was stamped next to the image in gray pigment ink.

I used the heart from the CutUps Talk to Me dies to cut a red heart to accent the image panel. I added a twine tied button on top of the heart to go with the sentiment.

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:
