Practical Scrappers Sketch

My layout for this week's sketch over at Practical Scrappers.....


The sketch, by DT member Heidi.....



I have used Fancy Pants "Christmas Magic" papers.....


A Prima flower, which I stickled, and then tucked some silver metallic eyelash behind it....


Kaiser clear stamps, which I stamped on acetate and cut close, I felt that if I had stamped directly onto the project, they would have been lost against the busy papers.....


A 3D embellishment at top right which has been in a box of stuff for goodness knows how long.....


The title is chipboard prepurchased which I inked with Royal Blue Tsukineko VersaColor, and highlighted with silver metallic eyelash.....





A few punched snowflakes and some inking.....



Photo is from Christmas Day (duh!!) 2009 - darling daughter, dear son-in-law and two of the most gorgeous little granddaughters in the world.....
So head on over to www.practicalscrappers.blogspot.com and why not have a go at the sketch, or any of the other challenges they have running concurrently.....

Wonderful layout Jane! SO much detail (deceivingly simple looking - but!) I'm glad you said something about the swirls being on acetate - that makes so much sense but I probably wouldn't have thought of it myself. LOL I LOVE the eyelash! Who knew! This is such a wonderful photo - and what a lovely way to display it!

Inspiring.
