Basic Grey Challenge #20—Sketch.

This week it is the a sketch challenge at basic Grey challenge blog.
Here is the sketch.


It is basically a card sketch but I wanted to make a layout using this card sketch.
Wanted to do something different.lol!!!
I always want to do something different.
I hate repetition unless it is on a layout or on the wall or garden, which creates an impact.
Thats why I hate ironing. Such boring repetitive job!!

Anyway, Here is my take on the sketch


I have used red card stock as the base and
other papers used here are from Basic Grey –Recess, Bittersweet and Stella Ruby papers
All of them are matted with black paper to highlight their colors.
I normally do not matt papers for a layout
but there is no right or wrong in scrap booking.
And I think it look good!
I have used lots of stamped images on the layout as embellishments.
I stamped the clock stamp from Heidi Stamp on the layout
but the start, arrow and text are stamped on pattern paper and cutout.
Chipboard brackets and tag pieces are inked.
Alphas from Basic Grey Bittersweet range.

Thanks for the sketch.
I loved making this layout using this sketch.
One of my favorite layout.

I really like the photo of her kids standing together and a wonderful background.
Siblings are lifetime buddies. Thats how the title came about.
I have used Bella scalloped card stock as the background paper,
with WRMK, Wipe Out and Cloud 9 pps for layers.
They are all distressed using Heidi Swapp Distressor but not inked.
I wanted the white to stand out against the purple background.
Flowers are from Green tara and Bella chipboard.
