Gotta love HK Trams

Get Picky's Challenge #17 was another fab sketch.  There were a number of photos that would work fantastically with this sketch but I decided on using 3 Instagram photos for it.  I just love this photos of the trams and how with the filters used and the blurring they really make these HK icons stand out.  We do use these trams to get around and I just love them.  They really do make you just sit and watch the world go by - the speed with which they go by probably also has something to do with it!

This is my take on the sketch for this challenge.

I love October Afternoon's Boarding Pass collection.  They've used the names of major cities as the paper names so I thought it would be really fun to use the "Hong Kong" paper as my base paper.  The epoxy circle stickers are from the new Dear Lizzy collection and I found some other emblishments that I thought worked really well.  I especially love the wording on the Admit One ticket...and so very apt!

  2. Great work with flipping the Get Picky sketch and utilizing all the fun little bits from the OA boarding pass collection! Love the mixed title, looks really great!

  3. What a clever use of patterned papers! I love your version of the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along..x
