Thank you berry much - FTTC #79

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC79)! This week Cindy Haffner is hosting. She is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much of an explanation necessary. You can turn it and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck!!! We cannot wait to see what you create with it!

Here's Cindy's sketch, and you can get all the details at the Flourishes' blog. I must tell you that when I first saw this sketch I had no idea what I was going to do, but I'm pretty happy with what I ended up with.

I decided it was high time I inked up this blueberry image from Berry Sweet. Then I went looking for paper and ran across Basic Grey's June Bug, which was perfect! I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and cut it out with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die. Finally, I matted it with paper cut/embossed with Label's Three Nestabilities. I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Be sure to go see how my team mates interpret the sketch today! I hope you'll play along with us! ~Supplies~
