Back With A Sketch...

Inkurable Stampers blog is back, and Sarah is trialing a new way to link up the entries : )  For this month she has provided a great sketch for us to play with, and today I got the time to clear my craft table and play along.   I just used the sketch as is, and I was all ready to stick the papers down when I realized I had forgotten to STAMP!!!!    So, I got out a flourish stamp(AL) and stamped the image onto my dark green cs with black ink, colouring in with pastel pencils, and also added a previously stamped and heat-embossed scrap (DD French Script) which I coloured with Adirondack ink (lettuce) and stuck on with foam tape for added dimention.    The pps are from a Prima 6" x 6" pad and I used my nestabilities to cut the shapes.    The sentiment is from a DD Wordstrip, the ribbon is HERE, and the shell button is HERE, and now for some photos:




There's still time to join in with this great challenge, just don't forget you need to use at least one stamp to qualify : )

Beautiful project! The different layers are so interesting, and I really like the different elements you've chosen and the way you've combined them. Lovely job!

..had a chuckle at the thought of you realising that you had not stamped at all - only because I have been there myself before! Love the inky green square of script, my eye was drawn to that and then I realised how much detail there is in all the layers.. Fab!

Such a pretty take on the sketch Vicky. I too love that French script square - looks like it was always meant to live there!
