Creative Sketches

I decided to challenge myself a little on this one. Since I was away on a Scrapbooking Retreat with minimal products I didn't have the luxury to fuss around with my normal amount of stash, so I decided to use one sheet of patterned paper along with a sheet of cardstock, oh a little bit of cheating using another piece of scrap laying around on my table. Here is what I created.

White Bazzil cardstock which I applied random white paint to, I then used a Prima Mask and spritzed with Mel's Diner and Lime Twist. I used one sheet of MME Rosy "Remember" Lovely paper including the cut off strip. I decided to bring along my nestabilities, focring me to actually make some use of them, Tear Drop Circles I also used these on the scrap from the MME range.

Since I am not huge fan of tons of flowers I opted to leave these off. My flower/ribbon is made from seam binding that I spritzed and scrunched and topped off with a hand made embellishment.

Other products are from: Hambly transparency, Martha Steward Butterfly Punch, Sizzix Tim Holtz Banner die and Xcut Looped Fringe border punch. Prima Pearls, Bazzill Brads and Fancy Pants rubons.

And before I forget check out the following, this is a Design Team Call for an Ebook that Creative Sketches are putting together.
