Wplus9 – Papel Picado


Having lived in the Southwest for over 10 years, the Papel Picado set by WPlus9 was a must have.  I added in some Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine paper and the sentiment for the Life is Good collection.  There are some other ideas percolating for this stamp and die set!

I am so sad that the Jillibean Card Kitchen Kit club is ending.  It has been a favorite of mine.  The last kit featured the Jillibean Cool as a Cucumber collection. The bold colors and geometrics were pleasing.

I just acquired the new  Jillibean Witches Brew collection from A Cherry On Top, it has an amusing black cat theme with many Halloween motifs.  The link will also show you Jillibean’s Owloween collection.  If Owls are your thing, you’ll love it.

It was the layering that inspired me to try this sketch.  For the most part,  I used large scraps, cut them to size and built up this image. It’s an odd collection of scraps from various collections.  It was a bit of a challenge to use the bold diamond pattern. When I pull out my Christmas supplies in another month or two,  this may have a Christmas sentiment added to it.

For now, what do you think?
