Tie One (or two... or five) On

This is my take on Stamping 411's challenge this week. It is also my 3rd day in a row of my own personal challenge (at least one card a day). I made it on Saturday, but I am posting it Sunday (the posting part was not part of my challenge).

Anyway, thanks to Stamping 411 for the sketch inspiration. I used my new set Best Dad Ever. I love the ties int his set.

For these, all a bit different, I used a VERY old DSP set. I have no clue the name of the paper. I bought a partially used set from a demonstrator for two buck (score on the bargain!). It is so old that it is only one sided! At the time I bought it, all the colors in it were still around. Now, two of the three I used are retired.

I started with a base of Brocade Blue (retired), then the DSP. Then another layer of brocade, another layer of DSP. Then a layer of Garden Green, then my ties in Brocade Blue, Garden Green, and Bordering Blue.

Here is the same thing, but this one has the sentiment from the set in Garden Green ink and layered on Bordering Blue.

Also, I know that it's impossible to tell from the pictures, but each tie is cut out and popped up using dimensionals and so is the sentiment.

This one is follows the same sketch, same DSP, but it uses just the two blues.

I like it! Hope you do, too...

Thanks for looking...

All of your cards are great, and I remember that dsp!! I love that you just switched out one or two elements to make whole new cards. Thanks for playing along this week :)
