Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge #4

April 7, 2009 at 10:17 am 7 comments

Here is my submission for the Truly Scrumptious Sketch Challenge #4. This is another sketch that is quite out-of-the-box for me. I don’t usually make square cards, but I’ve just purchased some envelopes that will fit these puppies, so I’m all set! I inked the Inspired by Nature flowers with my S-U markers in Barely Banana, So Saffron and More Mustard and used Close to Cocoa and Black on the top. I used Certainly Celery and Old Olive on the stem & leaves. I misted the stamp with a little water and stamped it on Whisper White card stock. I cut it out and layered it with my oval nesties. I used circle nesties for the two side panels in More Mustart & Old Olive. The card base is Basic Black and I used some DSP over that. I used some retired “Jersey” S-U ribbon across the centre. The sentiment is a rub-on from S-U. I used a few of Baba’s buttons (are you sick of hearing that yet?) to finish it all off. Thanks for having a look.
