Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #55 ~ Sketch

Thank you for stopping by today, I'm running a bit late with this post today, having house hunters coming all hours this week, really eats up my time and energy.

So, we have a sketch to help you this fortnight's challenge...
Use the sketch in any creative way that you want, flip it, turn it, be inspired by it. The circle could represent any image and "paperbabe stamps" any sentiment.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenges are open to everyone...
As usual you are welcome to combine with other challenges too.

Please be sure to link your project below for a chance to win Paperbabe Stamps Gift worth up to £20*.

Now onto the team's fabulous interpretation...

Terri chose to rotate the layout for her card. She use the Polka-dots stencil to add colour and pattern to the strip at the back.  The bottle was decorated using the mdf bottle of substrate which was painted with chalk paint and then had embossing powder added using the matching bottle-of-stamp-set. Terri added a butterfly emerging from the bottle, this was stamped with butterfly-pieridae-stamp-set. The sentiment is the dont-be-afraid-to-sparkle stamp.

Delphine took inspiration from the sketch for her watercoloured piece. The sunlight is the circle from the sketch and the vertical elements are the leaves pointing upwards. To create her lady, she used her Mixed Media Templates - Blunt Bangs Long Portrait (mini) and Head & Torso - and the Female Face stamp set. The leaves are from the Peony & Bud stamp set, and the butterfly from the Butterfly Pieridae stamp set.

Kim is making a start on a few Christmas cards, she stamped the polka dots using gold embossing powder, the snowflake substrate was painted with gesso and the coordinating snowflake on vellum. The sentiment was built from the Sparkle Bright set.
