Crafts 4 Eternity challenge time again! Michele's sketch is really fun. This week we are asking that you add as much or as little embellishment as you wish, wherever you want. Personally I love colouring the image, but then adding embellishment is the best bit as everything you add really gives impact to the card. Creating flowers is such fun as they always look gorgeous. I love really big ones!! Mine are a mixture of bought flowers & punches. I've also used a button, a hat pin, a spacer & dew drop for a bit of fun & to add extra texture. I also curled the petals to add more depth.
Unfortunately, the photo does not show the colours properly. The background pink is really more of a cerise that I stamped with a doodle flourish. It looks more orangey pink in the photo & not as nice. You'll have to take my word or it, it looks better IRL. I rotated the sketch 90 degrees as I felt it fitted the shape of my image better, but then realised after I finished the DP is the wrong way up. But then I guess you wouldn't have noticed had I not said, duh!!
Anyway, hope you are feeling inspired to have a go at this weeks sketch. See it here, along with the fabulous work of the other DT members.
Hope you are having a great weekend. Enjoy the weather while it lasts!
