Whew! This is for the Sketch Challenge this week. This makes 3 days straight of challenges! I really love that they make me think in a different direction and I try combinations that I wouldn't otherwise try. I love this sketch. It's simple and not too many layers. Just my style!
I had the flower already stamped and since I'm trying to use up some of the odds and ends laying around, I decided it would have to do for my design piece.
I think it took me longer to decide on a piece of Designer Series Paper than it did to stamp everything. Boy did I have fun going through all that paper! I think I need to have a class on using DSP and make room for some more! By the way, I decided on a piece from the Raspberry Tart set from last year.
The flower is done with Cameo Coral and Ruby Red. I used that combination a while back and I really love it. Both colors are going to be retired, so I need to use it all I can now. I used a Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Ice collection in the middle of the flower and some Mistletoe ribbon left over from the Christmas mini. All this is stamped on a Hug Note from the Occasions Mini. I used my Paper Piercer in each scallop.
The sentiment is done with the oval from an Oval All stamp and Short & Sweet. I punched it with the large oval punch and used the scallop punch to punch an Old Olive mat. I pierced these scallops too.
All this is mounted on a card with the front embossed with the BIG GUY and a SU Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate.
Well, this has been fun, but I really, really need to go cut sets out for Saturday.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come back soon.
