I was so happy when I was selected to be one of Liz Qualman's Guest Designers for her Sunday March 07 sketch ! She does wonderful sketches & I use them on a regular basis! I find that sketches are a perfect way to get those creative juices flowing!
I was holding onto this photo of my DIL, Stephanie & sweet niece Anna, for a little bit. They were "playing" at a family get together inside a princess castle pop up tent & I stuck the camera in the top & snapped a photo!
I used the yummy September 2009 Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook that featured Prima Indeed Collection.
Liz's sketch has a ribbon across the bottom... I used this as a jumping off point for my title work. The lettering is Prima "Times Alphabets." It is distressed lettering that I inked with Adirondack Purple Twilight & dotted with Raspberry Liquid Pearls.
I matted the photo & punched layers of card stock using a Fiskar's Lacy Days of Summer punch. I inked all edges with Adirondack Purple Twilight & Distressed Peeled Paint ink. Again I dotted with the Liquid Pearls for some added detail! The butterflies are K&Co stickers that were dabbed with some ink to control some of the shine!
The flowers were made with various punches & dies that are inked, layered & attached to the card stock with a brad flower center. The smaller flowers are Prima & came with the kit. The flourish is made with a BossKut leaf flourish die that I cut using my Sizzix Big Shot.
What a wonderful fun layout to do! Thank you Liz for a great sketch & the honor of being one of your Guest Designers alongside these other great artists... Robbie Herring & Michelle Unruh . I am humbled to be in their company!
