This is my entry for Flourishes sketch challenge. You know I can’t resist a good sketch! I’m not really a “bow girl” but when I saw this sketch, I thought the ornament hanging from the tree would be perfect and I could use a knot……then it took me a whole day to figure out what colors to use! Ha!

For the main panel, I stamped the ornament in Versamark and embossed with silver EP. Then I placed the main image panel on top of the Sky Blue strip and stamped the branch in Blue Bayou. Next I heavily sponged all the edges of the ornament. Finally, I colored a fat line of Copic B00 around the edge and quickly blended it into the white.

Stamps: Flourishes All that Glitters
Paper: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Papertrey White
Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
Accessories: Copics, Versamark, silver embossing powder, Martha Stewart punch, crop-o-dile, ribbon from Pink Hedgehog
