This weeks Sketch Challenge on My Favourite Things Blog #266 looked simple enough so I thought I would give it a try. I had a background sitting on my desk wondering what to do with so teamed it up with some die cut pieces using MFT Dies. Rectangle STAX set 1 and Stitched Rec STAX. The word stamps are from the MFT "Simply Fab Sayings" Set.
The background was made by stamping the PSX Ivy image (a now defunct company) and clear embossing it to use as a resist for my Brusho's .
I sponged 2 shades of green dye ink around the outside edge of the patterned paper, then added a strip of black stickers around the edge of the next layer for definition. Three black self adhesive gems finished it off.
