Whimsical Sketch Challenge

I don't do the Sketch Challenges at SCS that often even though I always intend to. I find that I generally stick to a few sketches that I use all the time so sometimes it's good for me to break out of a rut and try something different. Here's my take on SC156.

I love Garden Whimsy but have a difficult time getting it to work for me all the time. I will not let it conquer me so I think I'm going to have to play with it a little more :-) The card base is Black Textured cardstock and the patterned paper is Soft Sky Prints paper. I traced a dvd on Whisper White to get my circle and then stamped the butterflies in Soft Sky which was rock and rolled in Blue Bayou. The saying is stamped in Blue Bayou. The ladybugs are Purely Pomegranate and I went over the antenna with a Basic Black marker--I didn't reink between stampings since my Purely Pomegranate inkpad is super juicy and the third ladybug doesn't even look that pale to me :-). I used a sponge dauber to sponge on some Blue Bayou on the edges of the circle. It was still missing something so I added a few Fire and Ice Circle Rhinestone brads and then mounted the partial circle on dimensionals. This was a hard sketch for me but I guess that's why they call it a challenge.

I have to go pick up my oldest since he spent Christmas at his dad's but I think I'm going to try something else with this later on this evening.

Thanks for visiting!
