Playing in Paradise 23: Sketch


Welcome to another Playing in Paradise challenge! This week, Allison has created an original sketch for us to work with.


 Here is how mine turned out:


I think this would make a better home decor piece than a card but I kind of made it up as I went along.

I started with wanting to use my new Stampendous ribbon stamps. I bought them because I thought they'd be perfect for cards that require less bulk for shipping. They're also terrific because I don't have to worry about tying the perfect knot or bow... Already done! And then, of course, there are the endless possibilities of cardstock and ink combinations to match your "ribbon" with your project! I stamped it with Versamagic Night Sky ink on some light blue cardstock.

The panels in the background were created with Spellbinders Large Labels. I left the die in place to do a bit of inking (Night Sky again).

The semi-oval was die-cut using Spellbinders Lacey Ovals. Again, I left the die in place for more inking.

The sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkado.

The cluster of embellishments started with a bit of twine from Jillibean Soup. I tied it in a bow, cut the loops and frayed all the ends. 

The rolled flowers were created with a My Favorite Things die and my quilling tool. These are my first attempt but I'm certain to get the hang of it. I used Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls for the centers. I'll probably add a few more dabs around the sentiment for more visual interest/coordination. I finished things off with a couple of tiny paper roses.
