This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Cousins / Family - Scrap Africa Sketch no.15

Hi Everyone

There is a new sketch challenge posted here at Scrap Africa. Maybe you would like to join in the fun and play along! Check out the sketch below.

Here is my take on it.

I used Bo Bunny Country Garden papers and really love the soft colouring of this page.

Materials used:
Chiswick word stamp for background stamping
Prima flowers
Scrap FX flourish chpboard, painted with an acrylic dabber and highlighted with white pigment ink
K&Company rub-ons
Creative Memories sticker
7 Gypsies alpha stickers
Pearls for a little bit of bling
Gauze bandage for texture
Cuttlebug for leaves and doiley

You can get a closer look, with the shots below.

You have until the 14th March to submit your projects. It would be great if you could play along!

Have a super day!
