Creating with AHSC #67

I've been really busy creating many projects for various reasons, submissions into magazines, blog hops, and of course my sketch challenge.  I was playing around with the new markers and decided to use them as a feature on this week's challenge along with one of our new colours, (we have 5 new colours) Thistle.

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my creation:

I really had lots of fun playing with the stamp set Happy Birds(C1600). First I stamped with Versamark Ink on a piece of White Daisy Cardstock and added Clear Embossing powder so that the sentiment would remain white.  Then choosing Thistle Ink and Lagoon Ink to compliment each other I used my sponge daubers to create my own patterned paper.  For the flowers I stamped them in Archival Black Ink and heat set them so there would be no bleeding of ink.  I used Marigold(YR24), Turquoise Blue(B68), Peacock Green(BG61), Golden Yellow(Y222), Lavender(P83) and Peony Purple(P282) ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. 

I fussy cut out the flowers and adhered them using 3D Foam Tape, wrapped some twine around the coloured paper and adhered it to my cardbase.

I really hope you enjoyed my creation, and that you will continue over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, where the Design Team will be sure to inspire you even more with their creations.
