Stick It Down

 Hello!  Here's my take on December's Stick It Down sketch...



I'm a fan of this sketch (if I can say that about my own sketch?!) as it is so versatile.


I have switched the circles out for tags.  I reckon the design will work for the majority of shapes - I quite fancy having a go with stars.  The challenge would be finding a photo that would crop well.


I have been enjoying my advent calendar this month.  I've got a couple of mini blending brushes which I was keen to try out.  I pulled out a Skull and Cross Buns stencil and a few Pinkfresh inks and had some pastel fun for the background.  Wanting to carry on play with the blending brushes I coloured up a few white tags too.  My attempts at ombre blending were iffy but I'm pleased with them nonetheless.

I added detailing to the tags and background using a couple of Jen Schow stamp sets and a grey ink.  I thought black ink would be too harsh with the pastel colour palette.

I added a simple embellishment cluster to one of the tags.  I used a couple of sticks, part of a label and a butterfly cut from a shop bought birthday card I recieved this year.

I added three strips at the bottom as per the sketch.  One was ink blended, one stamped and one painted with the same gold paint I used to add splatters.  I added a trio of Doodlebug Sprinkles to bring the blue-green colour down to the bottom of the page.

Here's the process video:
