Scraps of Darkness Reveal..."Firecracker"

YES!!!!! It is Reveal day and it is full of Sparkling Yumminess!!!!! This kit is named "Firecracker" and you can bet that it Sizzles and Blazes enough to have earned its title! Ok, enough with the corny firecracker analogies, I'm sure you are Bursting at the seams to see what I am talking about. (Ha Ha, had to throw just one more line in there for ya)
Here is "Firecracker"
And here is the sketch provided this month by the lovely Charlotte Jenkins, aka SuePup. Once a month we have a sketch challenge over at our forum. We would love for you to come and play with us and guess what???? you do not have to be a member to play AND you do not have to use our kits to play. This is a fantastic way to come and hang out with us....give us a "test drive" so to speak, see if you like hanging out with us AND if you already like our kits then that just equals a Perfect Fit!!!!! Ok, Ok, again with my corny analogies....on with the show!!!!!! Ha, I just can't stop myself!!!!!!

Here is my first layout, "I Kinda Like You A Lot". It is loosely based on the sketch. I say that because it has some of the same elements but then I took it in my own direction which is what sketches are all about right????? I absolutely love to draw inspiration from a sketch and we have such a talent in Charlotte. She offers us such amazing sketches every month.
In this layout of my handsome son, Landon, I did layers and layers of texture. I was so thrilled that this kit offered the Shimmerz Texturz in it!!!!! That stuff is soooo fabulous! Another cool element was the black mesh ribbon. It has endless possibilities especially with mixed media type projects. But what I enjoyed most when it came to the sketch was duplicating those splats, drips and splatters of blue paint. I had this really cool metallic blue paint in my stash and I just went to town having such a blast while I was at it....get it....firecracker....blast!!!!!! HA HA!!!!! I think I am delirious!!!!!!

Next up, "Good Times". Can I just say that I absolutely loved the colors in this kit!!!! On top of that, Mel made this so very versatile that anyone would be able to create with it. This was a fun layout to create especially with the cute little bird stamp at the bottom right corner. The cheese cloth was also provided with enough left over for many future projects.

"Hello My Love"
In this layout I made use of the flower stencil offered in the color add on. The stickers and papers are from one of the new amazing summer lines by Glitz.

Lastly we have, "My Favorite Evening Captured". On here I wanted to do more of a tone on tone project. I grabbed all the Bo Bunny papers that had a red design and began to work my magic. When I found this particular picture I knew exactly what color palette I would be using especially when I picked up on the turquoise in my blouse. I grabbed some yellow ribbon from my stash and sprayed a couple of my flowers with a yellow color of Lindy's Stamp Gang. The butterflies and the chippies are from my own stash as well.
I hope you enjoy my creations with this kit but don't stop sure and go by Scraps of Darkness
