#TGIF172 Sketch Challenge

TGIF Challenges!

 Oh my goodness, guys! I'ts Friday and I'm so thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer for this week's TGIF Challenge! This week's theme is a sketch challenge and I gotta say, I'm pretty proud of myself for attempting a sketch challenge. Ordinarily I would shy away from them. I usually feel quite intimidated by them, but here I am doing it! And, guys, this is a fun one!

For this challenge, I decided to mix the Southern Serenade Stamp Set with the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. I love how beautifully these pair together even though they were not necessarily meant to. I used the largest die, designed to add a "stitched effect", on my bottom portion made from Smokey Slate Cardstock. I also used the long, narrow stitched die on a 1/4" piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock to add a little detail to it. 

I used Smokey Slate Ink to stamp my main focal flower as well as the background (the background was done in second generation ink, so stamped off once then onto my background). I used my Bermuda Bay Ink and Aqua Painter to color in the centers of the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I just LOVE these colors together!

To finish off my card, I added some White Baker's Twine and a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. For your convenience I have provided a list of the supplies used below.

This was such a fun challenge and I'm so happy and honored to be a part of these amazing weekly challenges! I hope that you were inspired and I look forward to seeing you next post!
