FTTC37 -- Sketch Challenge


Hello everyone~
It's a time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC37)!! For this challenge, Friends of Flourishes Team are celebrating the release week with 2 of 6 new release sets -- Christmas Drummers & Musical Score & Words!!
Cindy is our challenge host this week and she has a sketch challenge for you. Instead of it being just one sketch, though, it is a sketch four ways. The same sketch turned a quarter turn to give us four different looks. We like to call it a Sketch March in keeping with the drum and musical sets we are showcasing. So, you can decide if you want sketch option A, B, C, or D!!! You may even want to do all four!!!

I used Sketch C and the trumpet images for the main focus. I curved the trumpet stamp slightly when it was mounted, and stamped 4 times as shown. I colored the images with Copic markers and painted them over with VersaMark pen. Then they were heat embossed with clear EP. Next, the music score image was stamped for the background. After I sponged the mat, I simply stamped the sentiment.
The embossed scalloped mat was DTPed with the chalk ink. The ribbon & pearls were added for the finish.

Stamps: Christmas Drummers, Music Scores & Words (Flourishes)
Paper: bashful blue, bravo burgundy, pretty in pink (SU), classic white (Flourishes), designer papers (Basic Gray)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, VersaMagic red brick (Tsukineko), bashful blue, pretty in pink, bravo burgundy (SU), Copic markers - Y26, 08, 06
Accessories: ribbon, pearls (both available at Flourishes)
Tools: Nestabilities
