RI - Sketch J1410

Hello friends!

It's time for another fabulous sketch from Ms. Wendy at The House That Stamps Built. Play along and have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! I got me some Delovely Cosmo Cricket designer paper - isn't it boo-ti-ful? Such fun, bright colors! You'll definitely see more of it in my next few projects!

I really like this sketch, but I sure struggled with my focal point. :( I tried several things and finally determined at 10 p.m., that I would just have to be happy with this one.

For the circles on the right-hand side; I used my smallest nesties to create 3 circles and then added bright yellow brads to each one. I loved the rounded corners of the square, so I rounded ALL my edges!

The yellow panel directly below the flower was stamped with PTI's Damask Design in VersaMark and then I used a paintbrush to add pink chalk to the images. Very soft and subtle.

See that twill ribbon with the yellow edging? I added the yellow edges with my Copic markers - how cool is that? I LOVE the way it looks! I also used a pink spica glitter pen on the flower and a yellow spica glitter pen on the greenery around the flower.

Be sure to check out what the other RI Rock Stars have created; always lots of great creations to get your MOJO flowing!
Have a great week; hugs, ~M.
