MME Sketch Challenge

Oh I love a good sketch to get the creative process going!  It is different from creating your own because there is the challenge of working within someone else's design and matching photos and product to fit with my interpretation of it.

I went way back in my already processed 4x6 photo collection for some black and whites of my daughter when she was one.  I thought they would be perfect for the idea that I had come up with for the MME blog sketch challenge.  One photo is a little blurred and the lighting isn't great but such is real life so I used it anyway.

Supplies: patterned papers, chipboard banner and buttons, chipboard letters, stickers, floral rubon, twine, heart trinket and packaging (MME), letter stamps and ink (CTMH),embellishment stamps (Hof3)

This was the MME sketch ...

MME December Sketch

and it was a great one to get back into the scrappy saddle with due to it easy design yet lots of little bits for detail. Not to mention that I by far own an insanely copious amount of MME product in my stash. I can't help it if season after season, year after year, they offer gorgeous collections that I just have to have! LOL! It's just so hard to pass up good things!

I used a rub on and did a bunch of stamping and tool inking to match up the brush look design from the top corner around the photo arrangement cluster.  I like how it all worked out.
