I started my morning as I usually do with a cruise to SCS to see what the daily challenge was. Wednesdays are Sketch Challenge days and as soon as I saw the five circles, basketballs came to mind. I jumped right up and grabbed my Just Basketball set off the shelf. The inspiration I needed to put this set to use had arrived!
The net is cut out and taped over the accent paper strip. The basketballs are popped up on foam tape as is the sentiment. I used Creepy Crawly paper because this particular sheet reminds me of the texture of basketballs. The two white circles are actually punched from Confetti Cream card stock. White seemed to stark. I stamped the basketballs onto Whisper White and then accented the lines with my black marker. All the circles are cut out with my 1 1/4" punch from SU. People always comment on my awesome paper piercing. Well, I hate to break it to you, but that is faux paper piercing. I just stick the fine tip of a Stampin'Up marker through the holes of the paper piercing template!
