Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #117

Written by: iwona    7 Comments

Hi folks, ready for a new sketch? I will do my rounds commenting on your entries for the previous sketch soon, promise! I’m not quite back on the routine still, and very little has been happening craft-wise. I’ve been enjoying making our new house a home and spending time with my parents. Watching them bond with my younger one, and regaining contact with Chuplet is priceless.

I love this sketch and how versatile it is! I used a Wendy Wecchi Metallic Silver Embossing Paste with a Memory Box Rhapsody stencil, for a subtle background, over which I layered a magnificent Hero Arts Palm Fancy Die. I’ve been a long time fan of their Three Ferns stamp and when the coordinating die came out, I didn’t hesitate for a moment. It was just waiting for the right card to be used on!
For the sentiment, I combined the MFT Celebrate Die-Namics with the white embossed word from the Simon Says Always & Forever set.

The inspiration for the design (predominantly colour palette) is this gaw-juss dress from the Runway Inspired Challenge:


If you would like to play along:

– You’re kindly asked to save the sketch image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
– Share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget below, so that I can come and check it out!
– A new sketch is posted every other Saturday night (10pm Australian EST, 6am American EST, and the link widget is open for two weeks. However, you’re welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section and I’ll pop in to see it.
– Every now and then, I’ll be inviting one person who uses my sketch, to join me for the next one!
