It's Sketchy Challenge



 This week is the release of new stamps at Flourishes and  that means a great new challenge to join in!  It’s this fun sketch shown  and you might win the entire month's release.

Flourishes: It's Sketchy FLLCJUL13
 

I made my card using Tiger Lillies from A Year in Flowers. After stamping the image on White Cardstock with Memento Espresso Truffle ink, I colored the image with Copics Y17, 38, YR 02, 07, 21 and memento Markers Bamboo Leaves and Potter's Clay. I used GKD Grass Green CS as the card base with a mat of yellow and did a circle cutout and placed the Lily image underneath the window.  The sentiment from Flourishes Zinnias was stamped on Grass Green Cardstock with Potter's Clay ink  and enhanced with a cut out lily.

I originally made my card as shown on the left but then decided it looked too sparse and stamped the lily stamp in Bamboo Leaves ink to fill in the background. Which card do you prefer?

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate all your comments.
