Peachy Coneflowers

Hello! I played along with another SCS challenge today, this time the sketch challenge. I used images from Heartfelt and a sentiment from Various Verses

I stamped the coneflowers, from Heartfelt, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then used Copics to color, starting with RV19. 

Added RV29 (oops, I meant to use RV25 and couldn't figure out why this one was so dark until I saw the photo). 

Added RV23. I bet it would have blended better if I had used RV25 in the step above. LOL.

Then I filled in with RV21. 

I used Y21 on the flower centers. 

Added Y17. 

Then I added just a bit of E33 to deepen the shading. 

For the stems, I filled in with YG23. 

Then added YG97, using YG23 to blend it in.

On the background panels, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe in, using my Jumbo Sponge Dauber

 Then sponged Memento Rose Bud at the bottom only.

I stamped the silhouette wheat, from Heartfelt, using Memento Cantaloupe ink. 

I layered the panels with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Just Peachy card base. The flowers were cut out and adhered with Pop Dots. The horizontal layer was sponged with Memento Cantaloupe and embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment, from Various Verses, was stamped directly on the background.

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