AH 376 - Beautiful Friend

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #376!

This week, the sketch is shown as horizontal but I rotated it to make a vertical card instead. I had to go to a 5x7 card size as the image I used was too large for a standard size card. 

The image was stamped with Intense Black ink and coloured using a combination of Touch markers and Tri-Blend markers. I wanted a colour scheme of Eggplant, New England Ivy, Smoothie, Ballerina  and Pebble (or Linen). Every piece on this card was matted and I like the mixed coloured mats vs using the same colour for each of the pieces. I was intending to emboss the brick section but found some paper with a perfect brick pattern that worked well with this card. I also stamped a little corner piece, fussy cut and coloured it. A ribbon was added along with a few holographic sequins. The flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

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