At first this sketch had me a bit worried. However, as I looked at it more closely the possibilities really started springing to mind. It truly challenged my creative thinking to go outside of the box a bit. And that is one of the things I love most about this group. The challenge sketches force me to stretch my imagination.
For the background, I decided to go with a new technique I just learned on SCS called faux grid. On shiny cardstock I stamped various leaves in the colors I chose and created the tile around them. For the yellow rectangles I used a technique called faux linen created by sanding shiny white cardstock then sponging ink over it. Unfortunately the faux linen doesn't show up in the picture.
Thank you Ms. M for a truly challenging, exciting sketch!
