Purple, Purple and Yellow

Yes, I am sharing projects using sketches cause I LOVE them!
 First off, the Unscripted sketch for this week, I LOVE this sketch.
 There are alot of ways to use this sketch but I pulled out my amazing Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The main reason I wanted this cartridge is that there are many card shapes to cut. Many of the cards have an option to cut out a shaped window. I picked a card with a window and just cut it smaller then I would want if I was going to use it as a card base. Then I only used the front portion of the card with the window.  This shape has a bookplate that is the same shape as the window so I just cut one that is smaller so it would fit inside.
 My flower is also cut with that cartridge. I cut the top flower out of thin chipboard. It cut wonderfully with the Cricut, I just used the Multi cut button so it went around twice. Next I painted this with this amazing silver Crackle Paint by Ranger! What a cool look! The bottom flower is just the shadow button of the same flower.

 Next I went to the Play Date Cafe color combo for this week and looked up the new Card Pattern sketch and put those together. 
 I did take a few liberties with the sketch as you can see but I think that is what using a sketch is about.  I knew I just had to use that great color combo from Play Date Cafe.
This gorgeous label shape is in the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I cut the one fancy layer from yellow cardstock, matted that with a white oval layer and then cut a slightly larger oval layer from Core'dinations glitter cardstock from the light purple.  NOW, I pulled out some fun supplies. I coated the yellow and white layers with the Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint by Ranger and then accented portions of the cut shape with Glitter Fashion paint by Tulip. That compliments the glitter cardstock nicely.
(I don't sell the Art Philosophy cartridge nor do I get anything for telling you about it but wowie do I love this thing!)
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
