Deconstructed Sketch No. 204 and Always Playing With Paper Challenges

Saturday, June 20, 2015

Happy Saturday Fellow Crafters and Scrappers,

Today's card is inspired by Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch No. 204. I just had to play along this week as we say good-bye to the Deconstructed Sketch. I have enjoyed receiving Jen's weekly sketch inspiration in my email inbox for the past year and a half. Jen's sketches are a wonderful way to get excited about trying a new card design and playing with paper. I want to thank Jen for all she has done. It is because of Jen, I was introduced to Taylored Expressions and many other wonderful designers. Thank you for inspiring me, Jen, and helping me to become a better card designer. I will miss your weekly sketches. Best of luck on your new crafting journey =)

Today's card is also based on the inspiration challenge found at Always Playing With Paper (I adore that moniker). I took the opportunity to continue nurturing my color skills, and decided to use my Stampin' Up watercolor pencils that had been collecting dust in my craft room =( The delightful tea stamp set is from Taylored Expressions' In Other Words-Tea.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting.
