Paperbabe #67 ~ Sketch Challenge.. A bottle of Love & Luck.

Happy Friday everyone, i'm so glad you are here!!

There's a new Paperbabe Blog Challenge today and it's time to get your 
thinking caps on and create within the #67 ~ Sketch Challenge requirements.

Here is the Sketch to use as your prompt.

The flower can represent an image or embellishment and the Paperbabe text a sentiment.
Flip it or move those prompts around and have fun being creative.

Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year ~ The Year of the Dog.

Although there is no dog amongst my design the richness of the reds and golds
have been a big influence in this creation.. 

Here is my Paperbabe #67 ~Sketch Challenge design
and those How to do's.. with some hidden *Candy*..

Using red card I blended black ink through a stencil and heat embossed with gold.
This will be my background.

Stamped and embossed a continuous strip and mat and layered.

Three bottles were stamped and embossed, filling two 
with frantage and the third only half full.

Those full bottles were given a stamped stopper with the half full bottle being fussy cut 
to expose its insides. Labelled with Love, Luck and Elixir they were ready to be mounted.

The vapour stamp from the bottle of stamp set was stamped onto the background;
see how the fussy cut half bottle lets the vapour peep through when placed over it.

Time to layer up all those elements to create my Sketch Project piece.

With a dot and dab of glitter glue, some stars from the Bottle of substrates kit 
and a large Lucky Red Ribbon my #67 ~ Sketch Challenge piece is complete. 

To show my appreciation and give thanks to you 
all for your support I would like to share the Paperbabe love and
offer a *GIFT* to one of you lovely people in the form of a candy giveaway.

I have an extra set of Paperbabe Bottle of Stamps and if you would like to receive them
simply let me know in your comment on this post I will draw out the winner from the 
*Mad Hatters Hat on Friday 2nd March*

Wishing you a wonderful weekend
with lots of love and luck.

Creative Hugs

Hi Tracy, this is a great card. I so love that texture on the background and the bottles are so much fun, I would love to win a set of these so fingers crossed. Have a lovely weekend, Angela xXx

Dorthe said...

Tracey,it is a gorgeous piece of art, the frame is fantastic, and I love how you filled the bottles with magic, - and vapour coming from one--maybe not something I would be ready to smell, lol- A little like Aladdin`s bottle ..---
And to answer the note to me, in the older post...I agree, no eyes would ever be able to create the same beauty, in a Dinky size stencil , dear friend.
Big hugs to you , I hope your weekend have started out, wonderfully.
Dorthe, xxxx

This is a real beauty Tracey, there's just something about these colours together, so rich and luxurious, and definitely Oriental. The bottle and the vapour and the bling are all so eye catching - can you tell that I love it lol.
