CTS # 138, HLS Sketch and Virginia's View #18

I hit the triplex again.  Three challenges with one card.  I started with the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch,


got inspired by the sketch at Happy Little Stampers,

and knew my resulting card would fit right in at Virginia's View.


It just so happens that I got the perfect die from SSS.


The sentiment is also a new die from SSS and the background has been treated with the PTI Linen Impression plate.  Zigs were used to add the color.

Do you notice a difference in the photo?  I finally broke down and bought a light tent and lights.  I'm not sure I got quite the results I want (yet) but it's a far cry better than what I've been doing.  My brother and sister-in-law gave me a love gift as a thank you for all I do for our parents, part of which I spent on the kit.  I think it's appropriate that this card goes to them.

Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate your visits and comments.

  5. I LOVE your interpretation of our sketch, Bobby! This is so creative and clever! The photo tent is awesome ... I tried one a while back and didn't think it made much of a difference, but then when I started making more cards that had gold and silver embossing, I'm sorry I gave it away. The light reflects a lot off the shine. Now I need to go buy a new light tent. :) This looks amazing. And the focus is all about the card with no distractions. Have fun with your new toy! :) Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. xx

  10. How fabulous that your 'little' image packs such a powerful 'punch' in fitting into several challenges AND making me smile with delight! Geometric gorgeous! Super cool! Photos and I...not a winning combination. A 'love' gift: how sweet, as you most certainly deserve such recognition! The light tent looks like a wise investment!
