The Deconstructed Sketch No. 166

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

As always, Jen has created an awesome sketch for us to work with!

This card is for my younger sister whose birthday is coming up this Sunday... and then September is full of birthdays in my family... I think there is one every week!

I used the Brushed stamp set by Avery Elle. I first stamped the sentiment in Hero Arts Black dye ink on watercolor paper, then inked up the brush stroke stamps in Tim Holtz Distress Inks {Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers} and spritzed them with water before pressing them onto the paper. I then took my black watercolor pencil and wet the tip with my water brush and flicked it over the top for the speckled look.

The striped paper is from the MME Record It! Charmed 6x6 paper pad. I used Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz and Tropical Teal cardstock and some random sequins to finish it off!

Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see how they were inspired by this week's sketch:

I hope you are inspired to give this fabulous sketch a try. If you want to play along with us at The Deconstructed Sketch this week, the linky tool and details are over on Jen's blog!

I am also playing along with the AE I ♥U Challenge this week, which is to use sequins on your project!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
