Stampin' Up! Woodland Walk &
This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge is a sketch. I don't know about you, but I love sketches. I can always see so much potential in them and I almost ALWAYS use Designer Series Paper with them. Maybe it's because there are usually more layers than I traditionally use. Challenges are a great way to expand you skill set. They force you to go out of your comfort zone and that's probably why we call them “challenges!” What I like about this particular creation is the way the daisy pops - literally - right off the page. The background is so monochromatic that the bright Poppy Parade really stands out.

Putting It Together Tips:
- I love the look of the double stacked daisies. For more drama, make each layer lighter or darker to add interest and depth. I hold mine together during the build with a little bit of SNAIL.
- If you want a beautiful progression of cream colored card stock, go for Very Vanilla, Confetti Cream, and Naturals Ivory. They are just shades different and go beautifully together.
- Don't miss shopping the Clearance Rack. New stuff is always popping up. Best bargain - buy discontinued styles is current Color Collections. They always match perfectly.
- Positioning images perfectly is much more difficult when you're working with straight lines, like in a sentiment. But more so when you're working with two separate stamps for one sentiment. I love using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for that. I stamp the image on a small scrap of vellum and then place the vellum for the perfect image. A small amount of Dotto secures the vellum to the top of the stamp when you're through and you'll always have the image next time you need it!
