Instyle Stamps, Sketch Challenge 9

Hi All,

It's that time of the month for another sketch challenge from InStyle Stamps!  I LOVE sketch challenges.  It seems like there are endless possibilities - you can choose your colours, papers, embellishments...everything!

Please also make sure you stop by the ISS blog to see what the whole DT have been up to!

Here is the sketch:

Lots of room for creativity!

Here's what I got:

My card base is Old Olive Textured CS.  For all of the cardstock and patterned papers, I got them from a Simply Scrappin' Kit (SU) called Confetti.  For the next layer, I used some DSP, matted with Basic Black CS, which was punched with an EK Success edge punch.  I added 2 photo corners using Black CS and DSP.  For the vertical layer, I used DSP and Basic Black CS again. 
But, on op of that, I added a rub on - some vines and flowers.  I also added some cosmo glitter with my 2-Way Glue Pen.  I tied some White Satin ribbon around the whole base layer.

I stamped the sentiment "Grateful" (from Close To My Heart) in Versamark ink onto Summer Sun CS, and embossed with Maize embossing powder.  That was punched out with the Word Window punch, and adhered to the bottom of the long panel.

For the main panel, I printed "Wishing Chloe" onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with Oval Nesties.  I added some sponging for the clouds with Bashful Blue ink to the background.  I matted that with a Basic Black layer.

I hope you're all able to participate in the sketch challenge.  And head over to the ISS Store to pick up some new images!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
