Sweet Pink Flowers

Good Monday Morning to you! There is a new sketch challenge posted at StampTV and here is my sample for it. I used the flowers from Little Critters for this one.

Here is a look at the sketch. One random participant will win a stamp set from Gina K Designs. We would love to have you join in the fun!

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored Copic markers, starting with RV19.

Then I added RV25.

I filled in most of the way with RV21, leaving some highlighted areas. Then I used my blender pen to allow some color to bleed into the highlighted areas.

For the foliage, I used YG23 to fill in completely.

Then added shading with YG25 and used my blender pen to push in some highlights.

I cut the image using Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used my Versa Mark pen to color over the image so the embossing powder would stick.

Sponged with Memento Cantaloupe ink. The embossing resisted the ink, leaving the image intact.

Then sponged Memento Rose Bud ink.

Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves on the bottom.

I layered with Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and used a Creme De Menthe card base. The pattern paper is from an older Basic Grey pad, called Eva.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
