Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #73 with #30yearsofhappy

I used this sketch to make the following card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #73.  

The sketch stumped me for a bit and I started another sketch and halfway through it I realized if I moved a couple of things and rotated the sketch and voila a great card that fits the challenge!


The stamp set I used is the #30yearsofhappy and an interesting combination of papers!  The papers I used were Yuletide Carol and Pathfinding.


Yuletide Carol 
 Pathfinding
I used Cranberry Pigment Ink to make the stamping stand out on the Kraft paper.  The red Yuletide Carol paper worked perfect to cut stars from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, which I layered and pop dotted one and not the other!  As a finishing touch, I used Small Sparkles Clear Flourishes!

So anyone know why I chose to use Pigment ink for this project instead of the standard Dye based inks

First person with the answer I am looking for will get the M sized stamp of their choice!

    1. You could but that is not why I used it! Though if I had thought about it fast enough I might have! Thanks for answering!

  2. Hmmm, so maybe so the ink would sit on top of the kraft paper and be more vibrant instead of soaking into the paper and making a dull color?

  6. Love the way you thought "out of the box" for this card. With a sketch, there is almost always a way to "make it fit" if we try hard enough! Congrats!
