HLS September 2015 Sketch Challenge-Reminder

Happy Little StampersI’m happy to be sharing a card with you today as a member of the HLS Sketch Design Team as a reminder to play along at HLS’ September Sketch Challenge.


Here is September’s Sketch:

I really like this sketch. I think I could make about 100 different interpretations of this one sketch!

But, here’s just one, fairly literal one, that I have to share with you:


I masked off and sponged (ink blending/sponging is one of my favorite techniques) 4 rectangles, yellow, red,  green and blue on Neenah Solar White card-stock. Then I stamped the black lines around the rectangles with a stamp from PTI’s Super Stripes BG Builder stamp set. I cut the rectangles out and popped them up with 3M foam tape. I’m going to play this card at  SSS Monday’s Challenge: Love This Technique and Virginia’s View September Challenge: Geometric Patterns.
