Inspire.Create.Challenge #116 - Sketch Challenge...

Good morning and welcome to the Inspire.Create.Challenge #116.  Today we have another amazing sketch challenge for you.

Although the sketch has sharp lines on the corners, I decided to go for a slightly more subtle approach to my card today by creating a background using the 2021-2023 In Colors in the same pattern as the design.

I created the background by stamping the beautiful Ranunculus Romance stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder on to Shimmery White cardstock.  I then spritzed the card with water coloured with a few drops of reinker in Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya.  I added more colour where it needed a lift and mixed them up a little until I reached the desired effect.  Remember it always dries lighter than it is when wet.

The Ranunculus are stamped in Memento and coloured using a colour wash from the ink pads.  I loved how the colours blend together beautifully and the slight shimmer which comes from the Shimmery White cardstock.

It is amazing how a simple sketch can lead you in a completely different direction, it was really fun to create.

We would love to see your creations using this beautiful sketch and you can post your entry over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge website here or by clicking on the sketch above.
