October Sketchy Details Challenge

With Flourishes’ October release right around the corner, it’s time to get those creative juices flowing and have another fun-filled challenge. So, without further ado, welcome to…..

If you are anything like me, you love a great sketch to spark a little bit of creativity in the ole craft room!  So, look at the sketch above and let’s see what you’ve got! If you play, you’ll be in the running to win all three of Flourishes’ new releases for October. You have until Friday, October 15th at 5 PM EST to enter for your chance to win. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don’t, please play along anyway. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCOCT10. Keep in mind, in order to be eligible, you need to link your creation to the Flourishes blog  using the inlinkz linky.

I rotated the cketch to make a top fold card.

Using the Apple of My Eye set , I stamped the small apple three times, colored with Copics Daffodil and Poppy collections, and cut them out.  I cut an Oval using Nesties and Flourishes White Classic paper.  The second oval is done using a Deckled Edge nestie.  The base apple was applied directly to the white card stock and the second and third apples were applied using tiny dimmensionals.  I topped them off with tiny rhinestones from Kaiser.

The stripped layer is made from Basic Grey Jovial.  The edges were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

The next layer is Flourishes White Classic cardstock and is on top of the brand new Basic Grey Manila pad.  Four larger rhinestones set off the corners.  The base card stock is red.  The ribbon is the red with green edge from the Flourishes store.  All layers were attached with Scor-It Tape.

The Flourishes DT took on this ‘The Details are Sketchy’ challenge too.. so hop on over and see…
