Creative Inspirations Sketch Challenge

CIsketch041510Heartfeltstamps
         CIketch041510heartfulstampsMothersday
We have a Sketch challenge from Creative Inspiration Paints Blog and I took the opportunity to use some new stamps (I bought them a month ago!) from Heartfelt Creations.
 You stamp these stamps and they fit exactly in the Nestability! This particular flower-wildflower fits into the Peony nestability- there are as many stamps as there are nestabilities in a set. Here is a link to watch a video of how this works: http://www.heartfeltcreations.us/Stamps-MatchingNestibilitiesVideos.php
(Now I will be able to find the url next time I make something with these)………if I can remember where I put this link....
Once cut out, I layered a 'center' into the flower, and ‘fluffed’ it up so it would be dimensional.  I added Tallings in the center of each flower (Barbara Trombley elements).  I used a small Cuttlebug folder-which I had to cut open in order for it to be in the right direction……. I used white core Dk brown CS- and when sanded the white core shows.  I painted the white areas with Creative Inspiration Paints- Citrus and Green Olive for the leaves, Tutu Pink and Blush for the flowers. I used Fairy Dust CI Paint on the flowers- can you see the shimmer??? 
The edge is a Martha Stewart Punch. The sentiment is Sweet n Sassy from the Easter Lilly Set.
Challenges:
Creative Belli-die cut shapes- The Flowers!
Lots to Do-embossing
Corrosive challenge-texture
Practical Scrappers-glitter/bling
Cuttlebug Spot-Bling
