Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge


Good morning and happy Saturday. Here I am again for Our Creative Corner. This week our hostess, Wendy Jansen has a sketch challenge for you. I have to admit, I fudged it just a bit - I forgot about the ribbon across the main panel until I had the whole thing put together so I combined it with the right top corner element. Hope Wendy will forgive me for messing up her sketch!

I combined this challenge with the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge - light and dark greens and blue. I set out with my normal shabby chic style, sponging and scissor distressing the edges. The frame was embossed with Tim Holtz distress embossing power and I used his Tattered Florals die to cut canvas on which I applied two colors of alcohol inks. I've seen a couple of examples of canvas recently and it looked sweetly shabby so I purchased a small piece this week to play around with.

Products Used
Stamps: Bluebird from Artistic Outpost, music from Stamp Oasis and the Thanks stamp is from Celebration of Thanks by Verve
Paper: SU's Old Olive and (retired) Bermuda Bay, DP from Rasberry Road Designs Moments in Time and Pressed in Time digital paper packs
Ink: Stuart Superior India Ink, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Versamark
Accessories: Brad from SU, SU Word Window Punch, the flower brad is from Little Yellow Bicycle (old, probably not available any more - been in my stash forever), Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Powder, Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die, Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks in Stream and Meadow

Hope you'll skip on over to Our Creative Corner to see what the other designers have done with Wendy's sketch. Hope you'll check out their personal blogs too!

Wish I have your distressing skills with inks. Been studying this card to work out why my shabby chic cards never turns out quite sufficiently shabby !
