RI Sketch Challenge - Vase of Tulips


It's time for another Repeat Impressions 'What If! Wednesday' Sketch Challenge! For my challenge card, I used Repeat Impressions Vase of Tulips (1317-L) stamp for my focal image and patterned papers from Making Memories Flower Patch line.

I colored the tulips with Copic markers to match the background paper and left a couple of the flowers extended outside the top of the circle die.  The vase is paper pieced with coordinating patterned paper.  For the corner treatment, I used a crystal dragonfly from Prima and two yellow rhinestones.  I cut a small butterfly from another of the Flower Patch papers, covered it with Glossy Accents and adhered it, with a couple of pearls for its body, to one of the tulips.
The sentiment is also from Repeat Impressions (Just a A Note 2512-E) and was cut out using an oval Nestabilities die, then mounted on a Fancy Tags die cut from another piece of the Flower Patch paper.


Here's this week's sketch:

Now that is very cute! How in the world do you find paper that matches the stamps so perfectly? That paper looks like it was made for that stamp and then you colored the tulips to match as well. Love it.

How beautiful! Love your coloring and the paper pieced vase. Is that a tiny butterfly I spy on the side with teeny blue pearls?
