Hi there - May is upon us already and that means a new challenge at Lets Get Sketchy.  This weeks sketch is from Brenshevia and I have used a photo of myself and my friend that was taken on the dress up night at the Scrapping with the Stars Retreat in 2014.

I have gone with the bold blue and yellow to match our outfits. The background paper is Studio 75 "Miss Olivia 02".

I have used a Crafters workshop stencil "Random Stars" and then inks - Dylusions "Lemon Zest" and "London Blue"  Glimmer Mists "Marigold" and "Jazz Blue".  Some final touches with black ink.  

I have stamped a Tim Holtz stamp on the background.

I have used plain card stock for the layers to offset such a busy background.  I have added a few flowers from Iamroses and die cut doilees.  The chipboard title is from Dusty Attic which was a special run for the retreat.  I have embossed this using Zing Metallic Blue powder.

Here is a copy of the sketch

and here are some close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget to head over to the Lets Get Sketchy Blog here and have a go this month.

Until next time,  Happy Crafting :)
