CAS183 Sketch Challenge!

Here I am for the Clean and Simple challenge this week...a sketch challenge from our very own Tenia! I just loved the very original layout Tenia used on her card!
For this first one, I was going for a basically one layer card. I masked the diagonal shape, stamped the script and sponged inside the mask. I added the butterfly, sentiment and twine and viola!
stamps- SU Flutter Friends, Tim Holtz
ink- ranger distress inks, versafine black
paper- PTI white
accessories- twine
technique - masking

For this one I cut a piece of woodgrain patterned paper 4 X 5.25 and then used a craft knife to cut out the diagonal part. I used a christmas tree stamp and die but then I embossed it and sponged over it so it looked like a regular fir tree. Made a pretty cool guy card!

stamps- Papertrey Ink tree trimming trio, birthday basics, unk company alpha stamps
paper- DCWV patterned paper, PTI fine linen, SU old olive, chocolate chip
ink- ranger distress inks
accessories- sizzix embossing folder, PTI die, craft knife

For this one, I had to use the diagonal scrap cut out from the tree card!  I just distressed it a bit and cut out some stamped shells I colored with watercolor paints and an aqua pen. 
stamps- Flourishes, Papertrey Ink signature greetings
paper- DCWV patterned paper, PTI fine linen
ink- versafine black, ranger distress inks, PTI fresh snow
accessories- twine
techniques- distressing

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
