Sunday Sketches SS038 Abstract Impressions by Stampin' Up!

Each Sunday, I create a card using one of my card sketches. This week's sketch is number SS036.  Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.

You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!

Today's card features the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  This set reminds me of a stamp set long ago that I loved but parted with on a retired sale to get "new" stuff.   Sometimes I have sellers remorse and this classic style of stamp makes creating beautiful cards so simple.  No coloring let the ink pads do all the work to make a real "impression"!
