Techno Lunchtime Challenge



When I saw this sketch earlier today, I thought it would be "a piece of cake!" I was soooo wrong!!

This is the finished edition of the challenge this week, but a few earlier cards ended up in the trash. It's a great sketch, but each time I completed it, it just looked unfinished....like something else was needed.

So.....am I crazy about this card? No, not really, but I'm not really unhappy with it either. I pulled out some retired DSP...I think it was called Outlaw; and my Wanted stamp set, which has sat sadly neglected on the shelf for some time!

Oh, and see the little frame with the "thanks?" That's a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware in the recently retired Antique Copper....I used an old pair of scissors and cut off the little tabs, or the part that is designed for the mini brads. Then I used the Multipurpose Adhesive by Tombow (SU Idea Book, Pg. 191)...it's the BEST stuff!....to adhere the paper inside the frame and then the frame onto the card. That made it easy!

Check out MaryJo's sketch and the links to others who participated in her weekly sketch challenge. Despite the fact that I found it difficult, it was really a lot of fun!

Stamps: Wanted, Fundamental Phrases

Inks: Chocolate Chip

CS: Natural Ivory, Creamy Carmel, Sage Shadow, Outlaw DSP*

Misc: Wide Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, HodgePodge Hardware (frame & brads) in Antique Copper*, Wide Oval Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Paper Piercer (for mini brads in the center of the circles)

*Retired

Thanks for stopping by!

Just a little note.....the Sage Shadow CS really does match the same green color in the stripe of the DSP....for some reason, it does not on screen. But trust me, it works well together!

Very cool looking. I love the circles inside of the ovals. Great job on this one Barb. Thanks for playing along.

By the way, I believe to have and to hold is on the dormant list.

I think it's a great card!! I agree though--it's a tougher sketch than you first think!!

I like how you used large oval with circle overlay.

Lovely way of using your colors and very clever way of using your punches too!

I actually think this is a great card - it's sort of retro and I love how you've mixed circles and ovals ...
