First up today was the challenge at Just Add Ink.
Last night, when it was too hot to sleep, I spent time thinking about this sketch and was very pleased when things that made sense in the middle of the night still made sense in the light of day!
Underneath the large flower is a piece of watercolour paper that I've coloured with watercolour pencils and aquapainted. I built colour near the centre. The small flower I stamped after colouring it with Stampin' Write markers then touched up with ink and a blender pen to give some shading. The yellow centres have a touch of Wink of Stella.
I have to apologise for the quality of the photo of the embossing. After several attempts, I just can't get the light right. It is actually smooth and glossy and copper!
I wanted a very clean finish to this card and like the final result.
