OCL DT Sketch Challenge!

A great sketch AND a prize!?!? Yup, the OCL Design Team has started a Friday sketch challenge! Each Friday head on over to the Our Craft Lounge blog and you'll find an awesome sketch just waiting to get you inspired!

The first sketch (look HERE) is from the fabulous Broni Holcombe! I LOVE it! After not stamping for so long it was the perfect thing to get my mojo rockin!


I used the large flower from Thankful Flourishes (OCL), stamping it 4 times on different shades of pink paper from the My Minds Eye Home collection. I cut each flower out, used my bone folder to curl the edges and then punched a little circle of chipboard to put in between each layer. The back of the paper was white so I used the new Victorian Velvet Distress Ink (Tim Holtz) to color the back with my blending tool. The center is colored with Y23 Copic marker and then drops of Liquid Pearl added. A large pearl (Kaiser) is in the center.

The lattice strip (Martha Stewart punch) is layered over a strip of green from the same paper collection.

So... what about the prize you ask? Check out all the details at the OCL blog!
