Friday Sketchers - Sketch 51





Hi everyone a card today for Friday Sketchers who this week are celebrating their first anniversary. Congratulations! I haven't entered for a while but this challenge was one of the first challenges I found when I started blogging so I wanted to enter this week. I've followed the sketch but used ribbon instead of paper or card for the panels. My image is 'Poppies' soon to be available in the digi-shop. This drawing was inspired by my blogging buddy Tara G who very kindly sent me some beautiful red poppy paper a while ago which I loved and I mentioned at the time that I liked it so much I should draw some poppies, so now I have. I've watercoloured them with distress inks and added some stardust stickles here and there then torn the paper and sponged the edges with black and around the flowers with old paper. The gingham paper is digital and the beautiful crochet flower was from the lovely Bev (thank you Sweetie), everything else from stash. See you tomorrow with my DU2DS card. Chris x
