ODBD Sketch Challenge- Purple Mountain Majesty




Our Daily Bread Designs is hosting their third sketch challenge, which ends on the 15th. Check out the ODBD Blog for details about winning BLOG CANDY!!!
This quote comes from a brand new release from ODBD, called "In God We Trust".....you HAVE to check out the new patriotic sets and the awesome projects made with them at ODBD.
This is my first attempt at Flower Soft...please go easy on me! I love how the willow tree turned out, but the little flowers were a little more difficult! I've been wanting to make a willow tree for a while, especially after receiving my first Flower Soft order. Then comes along the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast, to use one of the Faviana prom dresses as your inspiration. As soon as I saw this dress, I was on my way. And why not kill two birds with one stone and use Our Daily Bread's sketch challenge?
I first sketched out the tree and scene on scratch paper, cut the sections out with an exacto knife, and sponged one part at a time onto the card panels with sponge daubers and ink pads. (The ovals were cut and embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities.) Once the sponging was finished, I drew some flower petals, then applied Flower Soft glue and Flower Soft. The colors I used were Shamrock Green, Fuschia, Lemon, and Baby Peach. This was easy to apply.....the hard part was WAITING for the glue to dry completely....argh!!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Don't forget to check out the Sketch Challenge at ODBD! Have a blessed weekend!!!

Angela I just used Flower Soft for the first time today and trust me... I think YOU did an awesome job! Your willow tree is fantastic! I tried to do tiny little touches of flowers and I'm not so sure about them. LOL! Love your take on the sketch too!
