Looks Like My Dad's Favorite Plaid Shirt

Sketch # 216 at "Unscripted Stitches" looks so interesting that I decided to play along with this  weeks challenge.

For this card I used my favorite Tim Holtz stamp set. The vintage truck seemed to be a perfect  fit with this brown , plaid , paper from the  DCWV  "Natural Stack". I layered it on a copper colored pearl paper and a dark brown cardstock.

The  sentiment stamp and the edges of all the papers were sponged with Distress Ink, vintage photo. The truck was stamped with SU Espresso Ink.

I used a Spellbinders oval die and a  Spellbinders Label Four die.

 This is the first time I have used Liquid Pearls in the colors Onyx Pearl and Hot Cocoa. Love them!

Here is the Unscripted Stitches #216 Sketch

The  background paper on this card is definitely a masculine print and brings back memories of my Dad wearing his favorite , brown plaid, wool shirt.


  1. The liquid pearls are pretty ... my grandpa always wore plaid shirts with his overalls ... what a great masculine card design ... so glad you joined us at Unscripted Sketches.

  2. Fabulous guy card! Love it! Thanks for playing at US!
