It's Wednesday once again and that means the newest Sketch Challenge is up at My Favorite Things. I used a few different techniques I learned in online card classes to go with my rendition of this week's sketch. I like how it turned out. I started by masking off a circle and lightly inking, then stamped the poppies, by My Favorite Things, using distress inks.
With my water brush, I "watercolored" the images to give them a soft, painted look, then sketched on them with a fine black marker. I also sketched around the masked circle to give it more definition in keeping with the sketch.
The sentiment comes from the same poppy stamp set, and the banner flag is from the Fishtail Flags Stax Dienamics set.
