I was surfing the net today to get some inspiration for my Retreat swaps (which I still haven't started!) and discovered a relatively new site called Deconstructing Jen - it has a Sketch Challenge that looks really neat and not too hard to comply with.
So here is the sketch challenge this week:
Stamps in this project include the divine new Papaya Collage which will be released in the Annual Catalogue in Australia tomorrow (yyaaayy!). French Foliage, an all time favourite of mine along with En Francais and Creative Elements. And Sincere Salutations which retires as of midnight tonight.
I stamped the smallest leaf from French Foliage and fussy cut them out, then distressed them to sit behind the flowers. Because the flowers blended into the page a bit I popped a bit of torn Gumball Green cardstock behind the flowers as well which I distressed and damaged first - can't help myself! And because the embossed card ran behind the flowers I made the beige flower from Sahara Sand cardstock to make it pop a little.
The Pool Party cardstock behind the tag is stamped using the filigree stamp from Creative Elements around the edges. I could not resist daubing and distressing the card before mounting them.
