Sketch Time Times Two!

Yesterday was my day to post a sketch and challenge over at Let's Capture These Sketches!

Here the sketch I created for the Sketch Team this week...

I also asked the team to use a minimum of THREE things on their pages that started with "B". For example, I used buttons, brads, the colours blue & black,black ink and I have a little birdie too!

Tough Day at School

supplies: patterned paper, Studio Calico; cardstock, Bazzill; chipboard tree, Magistical Memories; buttons, stick pins, My Little Bit of Whimsy; alphabet stickers, Scenic Route; leaves, Prima; ink, Ranger, Versamark; edge punch, EK Success; stamps, G Studio; brads, My Mind's Eye; other, thread.

Here's a close up my little chipboard tree by Magistical Memories. I inked the raw chipboard up using a variety of chalk inks and then backed it with some fun patterned papers. I added some shiny pearl brads and a cute little Whimsy bird stick pin!

I also used a few more Whimsy products... like the big textured buttons and a cute little apple pin...

I my haste last week I forgot to share my layout using last week's sketch and challenge.

You can see last week's sketch HERE.

Last week's sketch was designed by Guylaine. She challenges us to use either rik-rak ribbon or zig-zag stitching on our pages. I chose to go with the stitching... d'uh... sewing addict here!
