Atlantic Hearts Sketch 103

This week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts gave me the opportunity to use some colouring skills that I have been practicing! The ShinHan markers have had me pretty frustrated until recently. I spent some time watching some very helpful videos and I feel like I have a much better idea of how to use them now (not that I am claiming to be an expert by any means!) I really like how these flowers turned out and I wanted to use them on this card. 

I used one of the CTMH party favours gift bags for my "flower holder"... wanted to do something a little different. In order to get my flowers to fit, I had to turn the sketch on its side and alter the placement of a few items, but interpreting a sketch is what it's all about, right? 



Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week and show us how you interpret this week's sketch!
