Please scroll down to see my Clear and Simple post for today!


I love this weeks Retro Sketch! The original card is from Kasia and you can see it HERE.....Gorgeous! :) 

 Here is my take...upside down....

I used the cutest new set from Precious Remembrance.  Love those watermarked circles!  I masked off a 2" section and then stamped the circles.  When I was done, I scored a line on each side just for a little extra detail.  I stamped on pattern paper too! This was hard for me to do!  lol!  

Here is the sketch...upside down...

  11. Clever you--turning the sketch upside down. I always did poorly on those standardized tests where you had to rotate objects. Who knew how important that skill would be in real life! Love you stamping on patterned paper, too.
