Lunch Time Sketch #21


Stamps: Whipper Snapper Paper: Garden Green; Basic Black; White; Real Red Ink: Black Staz On Other: White flower ribbon/ric rac; Prima Flowers; Prisma pencils and Gamsol; white brad

Another Monday = another TechnoStamper Sketch! Be sure to check out Mary Jo's Blog at noon (EDT) to see her take on the sketch and what the rest of the "team" came up with.


I got my new Whipper Snapper stamps last week and couldn't wait to use this stamp with the ants and picnic basket...I had bought this watermelon paper about a month and thought they would be so cute together. But after putting it all together, I had mixed feelings: I felt like it was Busy, yet unbalanced/missing something on the left side of the card. So when in doubt, throw MORE stuff on there! hahaha I thought the White Flower ribbon/ric rac would add something and "dilute" the busy watermelon print....but I think I just confused things more....so at that point I had to say: Kerry, put down the card and walk away! Just walk Away!


I would have liked to have made another card with this sketch, but I just didn't have time. Maybe later this week.

Have a great week!

I love this! When I first saw the flowers I thought there were small primas that you had attached individually to your card! (I was beginning to wonder about you ;-) Personally, I like the addition of the ribbon. Very cute!
