Scrap Africa ~ Sketch Challenge #9

~~ Playing Around ~~ 

A new sketch is on at Scrap Africa... and this is my take on it. And for once, and believe me this does not happen very often, I am actually quite satisfied with the out come! Maybe it's the photos that Chantelle took of Michelle's Matric Farewell, maybe it's my and black, now how can I go wrong with that, maybe it's all the Prima flowers and goodies or maybe it's because I used my new Tim Holtz stamps and some of Donna Salazar inks and stamp and die's! For once I was able to put embellishments on my LO and not take them of because they didn't seem to fit on the page!

 Here then is my 'full' LO ! Hope you enjoy it ...

The actual pieces of netting and the Swarovski crystals were used on her dress.

I used three pieces of the puzzle from Donna's Mix'd Media Playtime die set, inked with Mix'e Media Mossy and Truffle Inx and embossed with UTEE. The stamped image is her Crackle stamp with Pewter Inx. The edges are also Mossy Inx with clear UTEE.

A little Petal Pin from Prima in aPrima flower...The green stamped images are from Tim's new Classic Stamp sets.

Some lace and crystals...

I even have two corners from Ingvild's Shabby Chic Treasures tucked between my flowers.

A wood Banner from Prima's Wood Tickets... The splatter is stamped with a Tim stamp and some Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist...Just love how the Treasure Island Aqua has a soft, lighter brown undertone with a beautiful turquoise shimmer.

Had to add some Dusty Attic to my LO...This Botanic Accent #2 was inked with Mixed Media Inx, embossed with UTEE and misted with Lindys mist... I heat it again after misting and got these lovely puddles of  ink's...  

That then is it...
