Beate's Sketch Challenge #19

Beate provided a really fun sketch this weekend for her weekly sketch challenge.

Here is Beate's sketch layout.

Here is my take on the layout.

I used Label Classics, Artfully Asian and cute converse stamp sets, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive cardstock, Rose Red and Soft Sky Double Sided, Designer Series Paper. Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Close to Cocoa Markers, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Basic Brown and Chocolate Chip Classic Inks, Blender Pens, Close to Cocoa Marker, Sponge Dauber, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Glitter, Paper Piercing tool kit.

For the main image, I stamped the rectangular frame from Label Classics in Chocolate Chip and then stamped the Flower from Artfully Asian three times using Basic Brown in and outside the frame. I took my paper snips and carefully cut out the image.

On a plastic plate, I scribbled ink from my Real Red Marker and added a dollop of Crystal Effects and worked very quickly to color the flowers and then sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over them. I then used my Real Read Marker to outline the flowers and color in the buds also.

I used Always Artichoke to outline the leaves and then used my blender pen and Old Olive Classic Ink to color the leaves.

With Soft Sky Classic Ink and my blender pen, I filled the background of the frame. I then switched colors to Creamy Caramel and used the Blender pen to fill in the frame mat.

I really like the look of this image and will be playing with this style and technique a little more in the next few days.

Happy Monday!
