When I was going back through the older posts, I kind of couldn't believe that I hadn't focused on pattern paper. I was sure I had (maybe I did but missed it...) Anyway, if it is a repeat, it's because it's that much of a staple in CAS stamping! Patterned paper can stand alone with a bit of ribbon and a sentiment (as Monday's card showcased), it can also be added as a form of an embellishment. Sometimes it simply gives you a starting point. A certain combination of patterns, images, or colours can be just the right source of inspiration to get that creative mind going! That's actually what happened with this card. I LOVE the Haiku paper (so much so that it may very well be a pack that I purchase again, which is quite the rarity for me!). I love the repeated patterns and the fresh combination of colours. I grabbed a piece of paper, and used the colours as my starting point- Tangerine and Saffron. Throw in a bit of white and you've got a sharp colour combination! To really make the silhouettes pop I embossed them with white and added a white rub-on sentiment. The card base is made from textured white cardstock.
The sketches are here to serve as a starting point for your card creations. There are no winners chosen. This site and the sketches are just for fun. The link lists are kept active for two weeks (in general they start on a Friday, and close 2 weeks later on a Friday). If you happen to make a challenge card after the link list is closed, feel free to leave a link in the comments!
