PPA38-A Sketch Challenge - Pocket Silhouettes

This week's Pal Paper Arts Challenge is A Sketch Challenge. Pal Paper Arts site is a great opportunity to help inspire you every week in a new challenge. Visit here for further information. 

This card features a series of three framed nature sillohouettes. The green scalloped borders of each frame set off the blue ink beautifully. To complete the look, a larger panel contains the thank you message.
  • Card measures a standard 4 1/4" by 5 1/2"
  • The large panel uses a un-re-inking technique - Ink you image once and stamp several times without re-inking in between

Baby Wipe Warm Sunset Strip Greeting Card

This card features a series of warm sunset colors stripped across the background. The black imagery completes the sunset feeling. This card uses the baby wipe technique. You can use any type of wipe you have at home. (a baby wipe, windex wipe, etc.) Fold the wipe in fourths and apply a few drops of several color reinkers to the folded edge. Once colored, swipe the wipe across the gloassy white paper. Make sure you use glossy paper otherwise, the swipe is not to smooth.
