It's time for another sketch challenge at My Grafico and this week's theme is Thank You and the Design Team got to work with this wonderful floral set called Mix and Match Stems by Mujka Designs
Also remember to click on my photo banner at the top for details of my 20000th hit blog candy!
Kraftin Kimmie wanted the colors Brown, Rust and Green or Yellow
Everybody Art , The Crafty Pad and Crafty Cardmakers all had an Autumn theme and I thought the colors and the Thank You worked well for this.
Digital Tuesday had a color combo of Kraft, Orange and another color which really worked in with the others.
Bee Crafty wanted to see Distressing
PaperTake wanted Spots and Stripes and there are both on the dp
Design Dollies wanted Stripes too
Digital Ink had a recipe of Fabric, Glitter, a Button and a Bow. I used Fabric style paper, glitter in the center of the flowers, buttons on the side (and they are printed on the paper too) and I tied a bow around the flowers.
365 Cards Day 238 wanted to see Fine Twine, which I used on the wooden buttons.
Belli also wanted Raffia or Twine
I did something a litte different this time with the images. First I printed them in 3 different sizes as all flowers aren't the same size. Then I colored them with my Copic's. I then cut them out and I used a stylus and embossed the petals and folded the petals up towards the middle for depth. Finally I inked the edges for more dimension. The dp is from The Crafty Stack and it was perfect for the "fabric" part of one of the challenges.
The wooden buttons are just from the gazillions that I seemed to have amassed over the years.
The mat behind the flowers is Coredinations cardstock that has been embossed with Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. Then I sanded it down to reveal the color beneath and then inked over the raised areas.
The inside is more dp and a message mat.
Hopefully you can see the depth created by the embossing of the petals.
The Copic's I used to color the flowers are:
YR01 - Peach Puff
YR61 - Yellowish Skin Pink
Y38 - Honey
E25 - Caribe Cocoa
E37 - Sepia
I'd love to see you using the sketch at My Grafico so get creating and post them over there for us all to see. Who knows you may win the set for yourself!
