Project: Sketch time at MAWTT
This week at Moving Along with the Times we are hosted by Claire and she's got a sketch for us to play along with:
The headline is my take on the layout. I recently rediscovered these cameo dies and thought it would be fun to play with them on this challenge using modern colors and patterns.
I used a decorative nesting label die for the central feature and did two layers in beige and chevron. The cameo is cut out of a dark brown paper that I also used for the border punch, a Martha Stewart one that is a favorite of mine. The green spotted paper and chevron paper are both from the Neopolitan Recollections pack from Michael's.
The beige ribbon is actually covering an oops moment - I smeared some ink from a completely different card on the green paper and thought I'd see if I could hide it rather than start over - successful I think!
The little beige pearls were added for texture as were the little brown spotted candies. I really enjoyed digging out these dies - sometimes a layout challenge causes you to rethink your kit and I hope you find it does the same for you this week!
