It has been a lot of fun figuring out what to do with this new sketch challenge. When I saw Makeesha's gorgeous example to go with the challenge, I was so keen to get out my new butterfly stamps and punch (available in the Summer Mini from Dec. 1st). Instead, I thought I'd try something a little different. However, I'm definitely going to make a similar card with butterflies, before the week is out!
Supplies for Hoot-Hoot Hooray!
Stamp Sets: Owl Together Now, Weathered Background stamp
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip (plain and textured), Kiwi Kiss (textured), Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla and Watercolour Paper
Ink: Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Creamy Caramel and Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Walk in the Park DSP, DS Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, Button Latte, Linen Thread, Distressing tool from Cutter Kit, Stampin' Dimensionals
Techniques: Watercolouring and dry embossing
Here's the sketch for this week -
This is my third challenge for Makeesha and I must admit, they are becoming a highlight for me and somewhat of an addiction (in a good way). At least my friend, Leonie (from Calder) will eventually get a card for her birthday! I realised today that I had missed it ... oops!
Thanks for stopping by,
