SOS April Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!
It's Rachelle here sharing my latest DT sketch project featured on

April Sketch Challenge - Word: FLOWER

 You have a few more days to get your entry in the challenge.
Entries are due: April 29th, 11:59 PM (PST)

 Here is my challenge inspiration...

I love nature especially butterflies and flowers. So I created this lovely nature layout using this picture from my son. The background has a bit of mixed media, edge stamping/distressed. I love layering and the chipboard greenery.
 Don't forget the twist word-FLOWERS
O=Organza ribbon
W=Washi tape
E=Enamel dots

 More Project Views...
My projects are always heavy in layers with a lot of pretty trinkets.
Next I distressed and inked the edges

I added floral chipboard, tags, flourish pearls, and a set 
of beautiful butterflies.

Here is a cute small floral cluster with baby breaths and ribbon.

I just love creating to capture special memories for a source of inspiration.
That's all for this post.
I hope this project inspires you to grab your stash and
express yourself.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Do come back!

used would blend in perfect,
I created the background with a bit of mixed media.
Using ink, spritz, and mica flakes.

Here are a few inspirational close up snippits...

Then I applied the layers, picture, Flourish Antique Brown.
Next, came the floral clusters and chipboard.
Love working with layers after layers.

Additional Elements...
