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.
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
