CPS Sketch #254!


I just wanted to pop in & share my take on CPS Sketch #254.  I picked up a 12x12 pad of black-on-kraft paper when I was at Hobby Lobby last, and thought it would work well with this sketch.  Then I added some wrinkle ribbon my friend Tanya sent me, as well as a button, some twine & a couple of stick pins from my stash (that I just found the other day when I was rearranging a few bazillion things in my office the other day).  I can honestly say this is the first time I've ever used stick pins on a card!  Finally, I coloured up Bryony (you have to scroll about halfway down the page), fussy cut her out & placed her on the image panel.  I tried something new-to-me & added a bit of RV95 in the deepest shadows of her skin... but you can't really tell... except for on her feet/legs where I screwed up and used RV99 - so she just sort of looks bruised.  Oh well - practice makes perfect, right?

Anyway, here it is:

I kind of love how the bow/button/stick pin combo somewhat resembles a butterfly!

Have a great day,
