our precious {merly impressions}

hello scrappy friends!

it's the 15th of the month and it is time for a new challenge at MERLY IMPRESSIONS!

this month we challenge you with a sketch! and this is my take on - 


and this is the sketch for august:

i started with KAISERCRAFT white premium cardstock, THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP masking template "mini briks" and "tile texture", and modelling paste. after i finished my design i began stamping using KAISERCRAFT "bubble wrap"clear stamp and TIM HOLTZ "broken china" distress ink. 

using FABER-CASTELL design memory craft watercolor pencils and a maksing template i created the "paint" spots on my background.

for my design i used KAISERCRAFT "lavendar haze" paper collection.

i fussy cut the dragonflies from the puce gloss paper and adhered them with mounting foam tape to my background to create a 3d effect.

to complete the sketch design i added paper stripes under my picture. i used pattern paper and the lavendar haze collectables chipboard pack to create them.

the mini roses are also from KAISERCRAFT - mini paper blooms "black", as well as the rhinestones - silver colour.

for the title i used SCRAPMATTS chipboard set "assorted words 07", which i coloured with a blue metallic paint.

here is a list of the products i used on this project:

i hope i managed to inspire you today!
