This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is a sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

My photo is a shocker and I will try and get a better one in the morning but the deadline is Midnight tonight so I didn't have a chance to wait for better light (or for the Crystal Effects to dry for that matter). So here is my entry:
The label holder is straight in real life...honest. The bird from the Always Stamp Set and the inside of the label holder have been covered in Crystal Effects for a bit of dimension and sparkle. Using it this way it would normally take a few hours to dry completely. Make sure you leave your card flat or the Crystal Effects will run with gravity (how do I know this you ask hmmm I may have had a little accident with it in the past).
I have cut roses from one of the sheets of Bella Rose paper and the other flower is made from circles of various sizes cut from the Bella Rose pink paper. I have also stamped the script stamp from the Level 2 Hostess Set Rustic Rooster several times on a strip of pink Bella Rose paper and torn and inked the edges.
The pearl in my flower centre is from the Pretties Kit and the label holder from our Styled Silver Hodgepodge. I tend to buy these things and then never use them because they are "so pretty". But I am making myself use them now and they do look much nicer on a card then sitting in a box where they won't be seen (wouldn't you agree??).
So there you have it my not quite dry yet entry...make sure you stop by Just Add Ink and enter have until midnight tonight.
Thanks for visiting
