AH 296 - HAPPY Eclipse card

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch 296! 

This seems like a very basic sketch - with room for a super large sentiment! 
I thought it was perfect for an eclipse card - one where the letters are raised on a dark background. The hardest part for me was choosing the stamp to create some sort of background for the letters... I finally settled on a new stamp that I purchased - from Penny Black called Fragrant Flowers. 

I used a single stamp from the set and randomly stamped around the white cardstock using Willow ink. I coloured in the flowers using two shades of watercolour pencils and then used a clear shimmer brush to blend the colours. The leaves were coloured using a single shade of green and also blended. 

The letters were die cut and then raised using foam tape to create the eclipse effect. To stay somewhat close to the sketch, I added some gold foil tape above and below the letters. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
