Welcome to the Sketch it Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to a cross promo blog hop from Stuck on U Sketches
and Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance Design Teams!

February 14-16
midnight to midnight

We've all created layouts based off our February 14th sketch
and the Scraps of Darkness teams have created theirs with the awesome kits from their shop!

As you know Scraps of Darkness is our sponsor for this month's
blog candy and we are so appreciative of them! 
So don't forget to join any challenge here at SOUS this month
for a chance to win that candy!

We are offering candy for this hop as well for hop participants!
A collection of Basic Grey paper and embellishments! 
Blog candy winner will be announced Friday, February 21.

(sorry, North America only)

Here is my creation.... 

I used The Style & Sophistication kit!

I added some gesso to the chalkboard flower from the kit

I mixed some molding paste with some twinkling H20's and a stencil from a previous kit!

In this months kit is this awesome new product Tsukineko: Imagine Crafts Vertigo Translucent Patterned Sheet!  I ran it through my embosser and inked and sprayed it with mists, then I used my gesso on the edges!  I also gessoed my handmade flower edges.

I also cut the vertigo in the shape of hearts

The hearts I used a stencil from a previous kit and some molding paste, sprayed with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist - Midnight Rendezvous Raven from the color add on, then dry brushed with gesso!
