Paper Crafts Crew 265 – Essentials by Ellen Fat Pants & Wonky Backdrops

Welcome back to the Paper Crafts Crew Challenge! This week we have a sketch challenge:

PCC265

I loved this sketch and knew exactly the set I wanted to use with it. I had bought Fat Pants from Ellen Hutson LLC last year, played with it a little, but didn’t get anything satisfying from it. I knew that it would be great for this sketch with the skewed rectangle. Lookie:

STINKIN’┬áCUTE! I had so much fun stamping this!

I used Taylored Expressions ink along with Delicata Black Shimmer ink for the greeting and used my favorite Sakura Stardust pen for little details.

I tiled the triangle stamp from Wonky Backdrops using my MISTI. I added a wavy border to the skewed rectangle with a Copic Multi Liner.

I added a little spiral clip from the stash just there where one is indicated in the sketch, and I think it adds a nice touch. Remember when we all were hooked on spiral clips? I still have a bunch in the stash!

A bit of baker’s twine was the only thing need to finish it off! I stared at it for a while after it was done, wondering if it was too busy, but I decided it’s not. It’s just riotously happy!
