October sketch challenges

I’m having fun playing with the DCWV October Sketch challenges for layouts and cards. Take a look.

My take:

I used one of the Premium Paper Collections available from JoAnn.com. This stack contains 5 specialty papers. The background is a chalkboard paper. I added white stamping for my title to give a nod to the style of paper without going to a full chalk-board look. The printed paper has the gorgeous gold foiling print which I used to add glitz and contrast to the layout. The floral paper is actually a glittered paper that I think is perfect is small doses, as accent embellishments, and used with a die to cut title lettering. The little banners accompanying the floral embellishments were cut with another die using the kit’s cream colored fabric “paper”. With a slight translucent quality, this fabric adds a pretty touch. Finally, the solid pink paper has a slight shimmer to it and worked very well for photo mating, journaling tags and as a third lettering style for my title. Add in a little more bling with some Doodle Bug sequins and I have a lovely page! (Dies: Technique Tuesday, banners, title word; Lawn Fawn, title letters; Die-namics, circles.)

And the card sketch:

And my take:
octcard

Using another Premium Paper Collections available from JoAnn.com, plus a bit of leftover cream fabric “paper” from the previous kit, I came up with this card. I think the textures of these papers together make for a very touchable card!

Check out these lines of papers from DCWV. They add a lot of pizzaz to projects!
