I'm Here for You


Here I go again...creating a little something 'outside the box' (for me anyway)! I wanted to play along with the DeNami Designs sketch challenge and I thought the colors at the Colour Q were a complete challenge for me especially at this time of year, so I went for it and combined them!

Here is the Colour Q palette...

And...here is the DeNami sketch...



I used this oh so pretty Swan image from DeNami Designs which you can find at their store...here...and bonus!... it's on sale! I stamped it with Memento ink and I only colored the bill of the swan with a Copic marker. The corners were rounded and distressed with the same ink. My kraft background is stamped with an Impression Obsession damask background stamp in white...you can just see it's subtle addition to the plain kraft paper! Then I layered up a little embossed paper and a dp that I found in my stash and added a few pearls. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set.

Challenges:
DeNami Designs Challenge #06 - sketch!
Colour Q #69 - see graphic above!
Crafty Creations - Heat It Up (warm colors)
