AH 264 - Bold Flowers!


Welcome to another sketch at Atlantic Hearts!

This sketch can result in a creation with much open space or it can be enlarged like I did and use more space on your project. Remember - a sketch is a STARTING POINT, not a requirement to do exactly as it is shown. As long as the sketch is recognizable, all is good. 

I turned the sketch 90 degrees so I had a vertical card as I prefer most of my cards to be that orientation. I also used a cluster of flowers rather than a circle and the scallop border was flipped around. Those are very minor changes. 

I chose to use one of the papers from the Beautiful Friendship paper pack as the background for my card. The flowers and leaves were stamped and embossed so the markers wouldn't run when colours were blended. The flowers were brushed with the Bashful Shimmer Brush - better seen in the second photo.
