AH 404 - Big Hug Flowers

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 404!

I stayed true to this week's sketch because it worked so perfectly for what I had in mind. 

Desert Rose has been a colour that I have really struggled with and I wanted to use it on this card. The Love of Colour guide suggested pairing it with Paprika, Peacock and Avocado, which are the colours I used on my card.

I started by stamping three of the same flower along with some leaves and colouring them using Tri-Blend markers. They were mounted on a piece of white cardstock that was lightly edged with Mink ink and then set on Desert Rose Glitter Paper. A woodgrain background was adhered to a Desert Rose base. The sentiment was stamped in Peacock pigment ink and embossed. It was adhered across the flowers with a matching gem at each end. 

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

You have until Sunday evening to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
