Time to get Sketchy

Hello everyone,

It is almost the weekend!  Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating :)  With it being a long weekend, hopefully you will all have some extra time to get crafty.  To help inspire you, we have a brand new Playing in Paradise sketch challenge starting today.  This time, our talented team leader Pam has designed a wonderful sketch for you.  This sketch would make a gorgeous layout, and, of course, with a little finagling it can also be made into a gorgeous card or other items.  We would love to see your take on the sketch; everyone is welcome to play along.  Here is my take:

These jumbo peruvian lilies by Stampendous are so gorgeous.  They were coloured with distress inks mixed with coordinating Smooch ink colours to make them shimmery and pearlescent.  I stamped them twice to layer them and give them dimension.  A little paper curling and some pop dots... they look so beautiful in real life.  This photo attempts to show some of the dimension:

Here is Pam's beautiful sketch, which I have rotated and flipped:

The team has made some gorgeous projects to inspire you, so please do pop on over to take a peak on the Playing in Paradise sketch challenge.  I hope you will join in; I'd love to see what you create!

Hugs & happy crafting!
