This is another take on the sketch challenge we have this month over at In Love With Stamping:
My previous version (scroll down to yesterday's post to see) has soft colours, further softened with some sponging to frame the image. This time around I decided to stick with the flowers but give them a harder edge with bolder colours and some metal and bling.
Stamp sets: Touch of Nature, Happy Moments (sentiment)
Cardstock: Basic Black, Taken with Teal
DSP: Sweet Pea
Other: Silver EP, Filigree Brads, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads
The flower and sentiment were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver EP. I chose a small pattern background from the Sweet Pea stack and matted it on a Basic Black card blank. The Filigree Brads were attached to the main image with medium and small Turquoise Rhinestone Brads from the Circle Ice collection. This was then popped up on dimensionals. The Filigree Brads are quite heavy so I used a couple of extra dimensionals behind them for strength.
Hope to see some of your entries to these challenges in the ILWS gallery soon.
