It's time for a new challenge at OUAS!

I'm so happy to announce that a new challenge is up over at "Once Upon A Sketch". Please be sure to check out the blog at to see the design team projects and more details.

The Main prize for this challenge is a lucious October kit from Swirlydoos kit club. I used this kit for my layout along with some Imaginarium chippies!

Here is my take on the challenge.
I embossed the key with gold and drew the journal spot, I got the idea from an old one that was black.
For the chippie flourishes I embossed them with white and sprayed them with Studio Calico's Mister Huey's mist in custard. The bloom wasn't quite the right color either, so I sprayed it with Mister Hueys also!
I used the Tim Holtz film and used rubon words on it, it worked perfectly!!!
On the butterfly I embossed it white and then used a couple of colors of ink and dabbed it with color.

November 1st Challenge
