Sketch Challenge


Here is my take on the SCS sketch challenge for today. Click here for details on the challenge. My little twist was that I decided to inlay the center section rather than popping it up. This was a little tricky but with the right punches I managed to pull it off. I hand drew the little details in the corner of the frame with my white gel pen then discovered the white was too harsh. I then went over it with a caramel marker, that worked really well (will have to remember that one!)

Details:
Bird and sentiment are A Muse
Flower and paisley are TT
PP is Basic Grey Phoebe
Sewing machine and pink thread
Green Heidi swap brads
White,clear,blue and glitter gel pens
Caramel colored marker
Sponge for distressing
Ticket,square,round punches
Spiral clip and ribbon from my stash
