Sketch + Color #2

For my next trick, I combined one of  the October Hero Arts sketches (top right):

with the now-expired (of course) Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge:

and made this card:

I used the right-hand column of Ribbon, Yellow+Gray, and Birthday. I was hoping my twine would pass as ribbon, but since the challenge is past, it really doesn't matter now, does it?

I suppose you want to know that I stamped no fewer than 6 of these before I got them all cleanly stamped and evenly spaced. Stamping is HARD, people, HARD!!!!

Okay, I'm going back in for more. Thanks for stopping by!

Items used and not included below: KaiserCraft Yellow Pearls, Twinery stone twine, Bazzill white card stock


  1. I think it turned out quite well - of course twine passes for ribbon. In my world, at least. I know you have a Stamp-a-ma-Jig somewhere in the Captains' Quarters, right? Just sayin'...

  2. It came out well, too bad about the 6 times LOL! I've started using more and more digis for layouts since my printer seems more reliable than I am for getting stuff straight.

  3. Well, if calling your blog "The Crooked Stamper" isn't an excuse to stamp not-quite-straight and say you did it on purpose, what is?

    Plus, the optical illusion of this particular design will make them look not-straight pretty much no matter what you do. True facts!

  4. Do I ever enjoy reading comments! All of them are true :) Also, stamping IS hard, and using a Stamp-a-ma-jig is cheating. I don't know how. It's just more hard core to stamp 'freely'. That's my excuse ;)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
