BTST #7...

This week's Beyond the Sketch Tuesday challenge will focus on punches. I made the sketch extremely simple because I wanted to leave you all room to expand your ideas. I would like you to make a recognizable image from any punches that you have laying around. There are so many things that you can make with punches - here is a recent card from a Stampin' Up! demonstrator publication that shows how you can use the SU! punches to make an owl -

Sooooo cute!!

Here is the simple sketch to start with as your basis for your punched objects. You can flip it as necessary....

***No Cricuts or die cuts allowed this time - just punched shapes.

Here is a teacher card that I made based on a punched card that I saw online a while back. I keep a list by punch type of what they each can be used for - so I was particularly drawn to this one with school starting soon. We will finally have Elementary School teachers to give gifts to, so I thought this card was perfect for this occasion. I used the SU! tab punch for the apple cores, the scallop punch for the colored sections of the cores, and the spiral punch for the notebook paper effect.

As usual - there are no creative limitations with this sketch challenge (besides the no die cut rule for this one particularly this week). Let your imagination take you where it may - and punch away!!!
