Sketch n Colour Challenge for PTI 8th Anniversary

Combining more than one challenge can be tricky but I think I did a pretty good job on this one.

The clock was stamped on vellum and embossed with some very, very old SU! embossing powder. A lot of the PTI gals have been using Zing! EP lately but this one is finer so I really like the way it turned out.

As you can see, I stretched the sketch so it would work better since my clock doesn’t have a 5.5” diameter like the card above.

I didn’t use the Fine Linen but instead used ivory. I much prefer it. The colours aren’t quite right above and I had a hard time editing them. The leaves are aqua mist stamped first with a second generation inking, then with a first generation inking for the veins. I did the same for the second and third layers of the rose. That ‘bow’ is what Melissa Philips calls a junk bow. I think i like them but next time I’ll add a few more soft ribbons and maybe add a few ribbons loops rather than have all of them single layered.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
