Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 17 - Sketch by Larissa, Copic Create - Botanicals


Hi everyone, my card for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp where this week we have a great sketch by my talented DT friend Larissa, thanks Larissa, I really enjoyed working with it and I hope you like my interpretation of it :D. I'm also entering this card into the Copic Creations Challenge where the theme is botanicals so I've used my new fuschia digi image (soon in the digi shop) and coloured with Copic markers. To make the card I used a Papermania scalloped card blank and sponged all over it randomly with distress inks in peeled paint and scattered straw. I scored double lines top and near to the bottom on my scoreboard to interpret the green shapes on the sketch and then added a piece of Making Memories Fa la la paper in between them. I tore the card for my image and sentiment into rough circles and also sponged these all over and mounted on dimension tape with some satin edged burgundy ribbon. Added some stickles and a pearl to finish. TFL. Chris x
