This week at Create with Connie and Mary, there is an AWESOME sketch challenge. At first I was a little intimidated but after playing for a couple of minutes, I saw how awesome it was and how many different things you can do with it!
I started by being inspired by the colours in the Play Date Designer Series Paper. The base is Chocolate Chip and as you can see I used a layer of the DSP to the left which is layered on Old Olive.
Next, for the central panel, I stamped the flower from Hello Again on Whisper White cardstock using my Real Red, Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Write markers. I layered this on some Old Olive, tore a corner and added a big stitch of linen thread.
I then added a punched, paper pierced and sponged piece of Old Olive to emulate grass and then a little So Saffron flag with I (heart) Nature stamped from the So Green stamp set.
Lastly, up top, I added three large Chocolate Chip brads which are backed with coordinating 1/2″ circles.
Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary and try your hand at the sketch!
