ISSC04 - Flowers for you

Happy Friday everyone! Now that it's the end of the week you all know what that means don't you? Well if you don't, let me fill you in. It's time for another iSpy Sketches challenge (ISSC04) *insert cheers of joy* :)

This week our sketch is based off of this card by Heather Klump. I just love her cards that this sketch is no different :) I used the image called Flower Garden by Stamping Bella and water coloured it with my tombow dual brush pens. I then added some re-inkers for the background, some chalk for shading and then finished off the image with some sponging.

My image was a little bit on the larger side so I had to adjust my measurements accordingly so it's not completely true to the original card but that's were creative liscence comes into play :) While I was at the PJ Crop in Washington this past weekend I picked up these pretty papers :) The pink is from My Minds Eye Lime Twist line and the Blue (Stella Rose) is a 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper pack that I purchased from The Ribbon Carousel :)

Thanks for joining me this week and don't tell the rest of the girls that I have included this but here is a photo that was taken of a few of us iSpy Sketch girls from the crop ;) They are going to have my heads for posting this! lol

No cosmetics, hairbrushes, or decent wardrobes were used in the making of this was a PJ crop after all :D
