September sketch challenge with Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Absolutely Beautiful - Sketch challenge by Michelle Van Oudtshoorn

Hello there,
It’s a new month, and a new month means a new sketch Challenge over at 49 & Market. And I so loved this month’s challenge – I hope you love it as much as I did.

And this is the sketch: 

September Sketch

I turned the sketch once anti-clockwise and did my take on it from there.

The base of the paper is the bonus sheet included on the back of the cover of the Vintage Artistry Beached 12 x 12 Collection. I then did some stamping with a script stamp down the sides and through the centre before I began putting my layout together.

I have used the laser cut flowers and leaves from the Vintage Artistry Blush Collection and combined these in layers with the Royal Spray Passion Pink paper flowers and the leaves that come from the same flower pack

I have also added Blush Wishing Bubbles and Baubles among the leaves and flowers.

I then added rub-ons from the Vintage Artistry Essentials rub-on pack – using the splatter like ones and the postage stamps. I then rubbed these around the elements and also on top of each other to create an effective background.

I then brushed white paint over the edges of the flowers and added some beads to finish off.
