2 Sketches 4 You #63

Hey there, friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far!  My parents arrived this morning and will be here for a week, plus I have jury duty starting Tuesday, so I don't know how much stamping and blogging I will get to do in the days ahead.  But I was determined to whip up a quick card this morning for Kazan's super sketch at 2S4Y.  I love how you could interpret the horizontal stripes in so many ways.

I needed a masculine thank you note to send to my brother, so I decided to use this fun sentiment from PTI's Signature Greetings with a single stamp I bought a while back from Imaginisce.  I couldn't resist the drum set, as my hubby plays and has inspired my kids to do the same from time to time!  I stamped it with Versamark onto a kraft circle cut out with a Nestie, then stamped the sentiment on top with PTI's Enchanted Evening ink.

For the sketch's horizontal stripes, I pulled out PTI's Library Ledger paper.  You can barely see it, but I stamped a few rows of A Little Argyle with Enchanted Evening ink onto the EE cardstock, so it just barely peeks out above and below the dp.  In hindsight I wish I had used the solid argyle image instead of the outline, but it adds just a little something extra.  For finishing details, I added paper piercing to circle, a few buttons, and some wrapped twine.

Cardstock:  Bazzill (kraft), Papertrey Ink (Enchanted Evening)
Patterned paper:  Papertrey Ink (Library Ledger)
Stamps:  Imaginisce (Drums), Papertrey Ink (Signature Greetings, A Little Argyle)
Ink:  Papertrey Ink (Enchanted Evening, Chai tea dye), Versamark
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle die), Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (buttons, jute twine)

Okay, that's it for me today!  I'm off to visit with family.  I hope you have some fun and relaxation planned for the weekend!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Love the drum image and the card you made for your brother. Great use of the sketch. But kids on drums....oh my LOL!

Have a great visit with your parents and I hope Jury Duty goes by quickly! I was fortunate enough to have just had one of my kids and was nursing when they asked me so I got out of it :)
