PPA 290 - a sketch challenge


This week at Pals Paper Arts, the very sweet and talented Patti MacLeith created this great sketch. I loved it as soon as I saw it and thought I'd make a fun fold card.


  • The card base measures 5-1/2" x 11"
  • I scored at 2-1/2" & 6-3/4" 
  • I lined the panels with Farmers Market DSP. This paper has such pretty colors and great images to fussy cut.


  • Covering images in Crystal Effects creates a glossy, lacquered look, but can take awhile to dry. When I'm in a hurry, I'll cover the image in VersaMark ink and use Clear Embossing Powder and melt with a heat tool. I'll repeat this process 3 or 4 times to achieve that  lacquered look.

Below is a list of the products I used to create this project. Click on any of the images below to purchase or for additional information:

  9. Very nice submit. I just stumbled upon your weblog site and need to says that i have truly enjoyed searching your blog posts. I'm working at Out of Home advertising in chennai I think There are several matters that i've wanted to get into. photography is one in all them and artwork is every other. i have truly no talent. I knew a person who became very proficient and he or she said it changed into just a matter of drawing all of the time and getting higher as she went alongside. it seems that you are presenting precisely what i need and become searching out.
