Time for another EBTKS challenge.
OK ladies (and gents), I'm stepping WAY outside of my comfort zone here. I don't know if you've noticed, but I've been trying to really stretch from my norm lately. So when I saw this sketch I immediately thought of a window with a flower box. (and the St. Louis Arch) Don't ask why. I stopped asking why my mind works the way it does years ago!
I started by hand sketching the arched window frame in pencil onto the front of my cardstock and then using a hobby knife to cut it out. I adhered transparency to the inside of the card and hand sketched in some siding for the house using a Toner Gray Prismacolor marker. I added the shading using SU! pastels in Bordering Blue.
For the "flowers", I again used the tree tops from Funky Foliage. First I stamped the medium polka dots from PTI's Polka Dot Basics II in SU!'s Cameo Coral, stamped the tree tops in black, and added the flower centers from Funky Flowers in black. I fussy cut them out and added the leaves from Funky Flowers in SU!'s Glorious Green. A little punched trim, some ribbon, a butterfly, and some pearls...voila! All that was left was the sentiment, from PTI's Giga Guide Lines.
If the color combo looks familiar, it should. It is the current Color Cue colors with a touch of green added!
