Stuck?! April 15th Sketch

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Morning, y'all!  We're not only half-way through the week, but also half-way through the month, and that means another fabulous sketch from our fearless leader over at Stuck?! Sketches.  Here's how I was inspired.
I started this page by smudging Navy Color Shine throughout the text, patterned, paper, base page.  I then stamped lots of triangles, in both Night of Navy and Pistachio Pudding inks, throughout the page, before machine-stitching a gold-threaded, straight-stitch, double frame around the edges of the page, as well as a number of horizontal, patterned, paper strips near the page's bottom center and top right corner.  My stamped triangles were then clustered with a number of hand-cut, from patterned paper, soft and dark peach, as well as gold sticker, triangles.  After matting my photo strip with Whisper White cardstock and adhering it over the bottom center paper strips, I tucked a triangle transparency, as well as a mint, stripe, November 1, 2014 @ home label, under its bottom edge.
It was topped with a floral die cut; navy, leather bow; tag; kraft, polka dot envelope; paper domino; and mint, arrow clip.  A "THIS IS IT.", word bubble sticker and "SATURDAY" die cut, as well as a little hemp twine for the tag...
and denim ribbon for the clip round out the bulk of the design.
A "has my heart", cardstock sticker...
turns our attention to the "BIRTHDAY girl" title, which was created from gold foil Thickers and a Cameo-cut, from Night of Navy cardstock, "girl".  A "remember this" sticker and "happy." rubon, as well as bits of gold, stripe Washi here and there...
and a trio of gold glitter brads complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Noel Mignon's March Color Board...
and Scrap Our Stash's Challenge #25 (S = stamping, stitching, stickers, striped Washi; T = triangles, transparency, thread, Thickers, tag, twine; A = arrow clip, Adina (photos of my daughter); M = mist, mint green; P = polka dots, Pistachio Pudding ink, peach).
And here's your April 15th Sketch to get you started.
