MMSC24 Sketch Challenge


Priscilla's sketch for this week was definitely challenging. I really had fun with it though. I used some of the Ambrosia paper by Basic Grey and you can guess what else---Yes, my air brush tool to coordinate my flowers, metals, and cardstock. Air brushing has helped so much in coordinating embellishments with the right project. I also added some beads and a marble gem. The focal image is an SU stamp from the Morning Soft set. I cuttlebugged the ovals and sanded them to expose the embossed image and to add more character. I really enjoyed this challenge because I got an opportunity to use my stash. I love that! Enjoy!!
