'Beauty' Skissedilla Challenge #176

I squeezed this challenge in between drop off and pick up times at Nursery yesterday :0)

The photo is of a post that was jutting out of Lake Garda...I don't know why, or what it's for, but I loved the beauty of it......hence the title!

background paper is MME , the black dp is.......get ready Lizzy...Websters Pages!!! Yes ok I know not the most flowery of all I own but at least I have used one of them!! I cut a random square background on the Silhouette, but I'm not sure it's obvious on the photo.

MME label and woodgrain stamps and a wee bit of a PP screen print. Blue alcohol ink and Tumbled Glass Distress Stain. Studio Calico stars, some have been swiped with an Aqua Paint Dabber

Tim Holtz ticket stamp and MME arrow and a new buy from Stash Panache the tin button :0)

 inking and misting :0)
I wanted to keep the colours 'monochromatic' to echo the photo. I used the inspirational Skissedilla sketch

 love the simplicity :0)

Thanks for popping in,

Ali x

Well, you've done fantastically, my friend!!!! They look like stamped bannerish thingies behind the photo - looks great:) And, BTW, we stayed at Desenzano Del Garda around 3 -4 years ago, I think it was, for a week & ADORED it to pieces. Would go back there tomorrow. Heading to Florence on Wednesday next, so I'll be outta circulation for 5 weeks...did I tell you? BIG holiday. Catching a Voyages of Discovery cruise from Dubrovnik...I think they come out of England????:):):)

  3. I can totally understand why that post caught your eye, there definitely is something about it. You have so many yummie stamps and ink products, love them all! the blue dots are really smashing as are what Lizzy calls "the stamped bannerish" thingies! He he loooong time since I visited Lake Garda, back in 1976 when I was a wee lass. My goodness what fab hols Mrs Hill is going on, I say - cruising from Dubrovnik! jealous? me? ... :)))
