Cosmo Cricket Sketch Take

I've had some Cosmo Boyfriend and Earth Love pp since last December but just haven't had the chance to use it since then. Now over at Cosmo, there's an on going challenge to use a sketch and of course some cosmo pp so I immediately grabbed the sketch and create my take on it.

This time I thought of doing a page about DH, I think I haven't done that in a while or not yet? hehehe... can't remember. So here's the sketch.

And here's my take... Used the boyfriend and earth love pp on these. I only bought three papers from Cosmo and I wish bought more cause I loved it! Oh well, now I'm looking out for the new CHA papers they have!

And as I've said the past few posts, I'm obsessed with my stamps lately. Finding ways to use them so I can have an excuse to buy those new hero arts 2010 stamps! LOL! My attempts were good because I used 4 stamps on this page! Not bad eh?:) First is the ticket that says completely taken is from an Autumn Leaves Stamp. I love it because you can actually use 3 colors to make this ticket, one is the background color, the border and then the words inside! Clever idea right? :)

This next photo is the close up of the chipboards I used. I did a bit of a work here coz these are naked chipboards - the frames I mean. They are from Maya road and I painted the base with brown and then mustard and olive green after. Once dry, I sanded some parts of the chipboard for the brown to show through. Then I used 2 HA stamps here, once's the script and then the background scroll. The puzzle pieces is from K & Co I think and then the felt leaves are from MM, I just drew the lines on it for it to pop.

Here's the close up of the trees from the pp that I layered together. I then tied the same string I used for the buttons (see below).

Here's the close up of the buttons and the butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado.
