You might remember a few days ago I posted a card that looked absolutely nothing like the Unscripted Sketch for this week that I had intended to follow! I really wanted to try this sketch again, and make something that actually resembled it this time around! The light bulb went off yesterday, when the new Card Concepts challenge came out. The challenge was to use texture, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do, using texture to make the Unscripted Sketch work.
Here's what I came up with:
I used my embossing paste, and tinted it with my new Soft Pool Ink (I have been waiting to get this for so long!). I used the same process to tint the paste as I did when I made this card (third card down in the post). I noticed that Shari Carroll used the exact same process in a video she did a few days ago for Simon Says Stamp. If you are interested in seeing how it's done, have a peek at the video. It is so easy peasy!! For the circle, I just gathered some twine into a circle and tied a bow at the top. I've seen this done a few times now, and really love the look. Especially when you don't want to cover something up, like the embossing in this case. Then I just added the sweet Mama Elephant image and sentiment, and the card was done!
Here's the Unscripted Sketch (I think you'll agree that the card looks much more like the sketch now!):

Have a good day!!
