Good Morning! It is time for another challenge at Papertrey ink! Here is the link to the post if you would like to play along or watch the video. http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2012/06/make-it-monday-69-inspiration-into-unique-sketches.html Nicole talks about how she uses every day objects as inspiration to make sketches. There are several sketches to choose from this week and this is the one I chose to use.
This sketch is based on the scrapbook page she saw on the left. This is a pretty easy sketch and could be done so many different ways. For this week’s challenge, you need to use at least one Papertrey ink product and one of the sketches.
I try and use as many Papertrey ink products as I can when I participate. I decided to use the PTI bookmark die for the banners. I flipped it upside down on the card and then put brads in where the die cuts the hole to thread a ribbon or cord through the top of the bookmark. Adding the brad to the bookmark banners immediately changed the look, and I don’t think anyone would realize it was a bookmark unless you own it! I also free hand, paper pierced around them . The sentiment “Just because” is from the PTI stamp set Script Sentiment. I sponged around the sentiment with some Pumpkin Pie ink. I also used PTI aqua mist card stock for the base (I am so in love with this color) and I used the Flower Fushion #1 and #12 dies to make the paper flowers. I cut stacks of flowers out with the flower dies and old dictionary paper then poked a hole through them and added a brad to hold them together. Then I crumpled each layer up in the center, one by one, till they were all covering the brad. While they were still crumpled, I took a sponge dauber and Melon Mambo ink, and inked the edges, and I used the dauber to curl and shape the petals at the same time, then I opened the petals back up. I love how they turned out! All other products used were from SU except for the brads.
I am headed to Flowerbuds this afternoon with a friend. Make it a great day! Elaine
