Good morning all! I love the fact that Beate publishes a sketch challenge so that we can all learn to expand our creativity. I thought this one was a lot of fun and will probably do a lot more using this layout BUT here is the one I would like to submit for the challenge: I can't seem to get enough of any of the doodle sets! I think they are sooo much fun to play with that my other poor stamps are sitting on the shelves being neglected! I am going to have to change that....but for now, this is what I used to make this card! Base of the card and accent pieces are Taken With Teal, and the two layers are Gable Green and Groovy Guava - I think they really complement each other and love the effects! I stamped the base layer with the small flower from double doodles using the same color ink. I used my ticket punch on both layers and stamped the green layer with the little flower in the baroque motifs set. I used the large doodle from that set on the guava layer. To complement the color schemes, I stamped both of these layers using the matching ink pads. Then, I stamped the large flower from the Doodle This Set onto Taken with Teal in the same color ink, cut them out, highlighted them in the matching stampin write marker, and popped them up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from the label punch set and is stamped in black stazon and popped up on dimensionals. Then, because no card is complete without a little bling *wink*, I added some glitter using two way glue. You can see it on the little flowers in the background, the doodle, AND of course on the large flower petals and center. I had a lot of fun making this card and like the way it turned out. Hope you all enjoy! Have a fantastic rest of the weekend!
