Hello again my friends! I decided to try & jump start my mojo by doing today's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. This challenge blog always inspires me so here we go!! Here is the sketch we had to work with today. The first thought for my creation was to try and use one of the many images I had laying on my worktable. I had printed this particular image in several sizes and never got around to using any of them so that's where I began!
This image is called "Thoughtful Woman" and came from the "Free Antique Images" blog. I also wanted to reduce the size of my scrap pile so the designer papers used here came from that scrap box. The background panel is K&Co. Ancestry designer paper and the corners are Graphic45. My base card is Very Vanilla and the matting is Pink Pirouette.
I image was printed in black/white then colored using ZIG Photo Twin markers. The corners have been doubled. The bottom triangle was a 2" square cut in half ... the top triangle was a 1-1/2" square cut in half and dimensional tape was used between the two triangles for added dimension.. Kaiser half pearls were used to embellish the corners and a Kaiser designer pearl was also used in the upper right corner. Scraps were used to punch out the branches using the Martha Stewart branch punch. Nestabilities classic ovals & scallop ovals were used for the main image and finally the sentiment is from Stampendous!
This took me a little longer than it should have but that's okay ... I'm happy with the outcome and I'm glad to be back to crafting. Thanks for stopping by today.
