{DDCC Design Team Project: A sketch}
{ ... also entered for CCT: Getting Edgy / OSCC: Decorative Cuts }
Once again, I am just a small step ahead of my DDCC design team challenge projects. The challenge for next week Thursday is a gorgeously versatile sketch by Tamara. I just loved working with all these layers.
I know you all are probably reaching for those shades right now, trying to neutralise the sudden brightness, but it was a pleasant change working with these bright and happy Basic Grey cardstocks. The touches of black check pattern are from a sheet of Making Memories foiled cardstock which was cut up just to get hold of the check part of the design. The flowers were once again created with my Fold-it Swirls template, using the Buttercup design. The frame around the image, the sentiment and the photo turns are some 3D embellishments I had in my stash. The white swirls and photo corner are rub-ons from Scrapbook King, a local rub-on supplier here in South Africa. I also used two different decorative scissors, sand papered quite a few paper edges and distressed the edges of the flowers and some cardstocks with fluid chalk ink.
Please do visit these challenge blogs to feast your eyes on the beautiful creations of the talented Design Teams. Thanks once again for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Wishing all a fabulous weekend.

  22. Reckon you could make yourself a good deal of money doing wedding invitations, etc. Your work is always beautiful. My cousin (who I've just spent the weekend with in Durban) has a good friend who arranges weddings. I have been to two of them (hers & her sisters) & every touch is just like yours - perfect. If you would like, I could send her an e mail with a link to your blog & ask her to pass it on to him, if you would like to do that kind of thing. LMK ;-D
