Fab Friday 83

It's been quite a while for me since posting to my blog, but I thought it would be fun to participate in the Fab Friday challenges again for the first time in several years.  Here is the challenge blog:

This week's Challenge:

What a fun sketch this was!  I needed some inspiration, plus I had some new goodies to play with so I needed a reason.

My Creation:

(Almost all materials used are Stampin' Up! Brand Products)
Stamps: Helping Me Grow, Timeless Textures, Hardwood
Ink: Memento Jet Black, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Old Olive, Crumb Cake
Paper: Farmers Market Designer Series Paper, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Washi Label Punch, Metallics Sequins, Gold Wink of Stella, Blender Pens, Dimensionals, Sponges

Started with the Floral Image in the center, stamping the flower in black, as well as the corner decoration around the three corners.  Used Blender Pens to color in the blossoms with Blackberry Bliss, and an Old Olive Marker for the stem.  Sponged with Hello Honey around the edges.

The Background is stamped with Hardwood in Crumb Cake.  I took the splatter image from Timeless Textures and colored with the Gold Wink of Stella to stamp the golden splatters.

The Strips of Paper are cut at the ends by inserting the strips of paper from the reverse direction to cut the design, using the Decorative Label Punch.

I hope you like my art work! Happy Friday, Everyone!
