How quickly the monthly sketch challenge comes around!! Here we are in April already! I've kept it quite simple this month and I have used some of gorgeous peel offs designed by Francoise Read. I've used a whole sheet for this card, removing  them all and placing them onto plain white card. I have then coloured them with the Sakura stardust pens using 2 toning colours. This was a technique that I learned with Francoise at recent workshops. I have then cut out all the flowers and leaves and moulded them using a large ball tool and moulding mat to give them some rounded shape. The flowers and leaves have then been mounted onto the layered panels of bright pink and purple card and I have used various depths of DSA foam tape to add some movement and interest. I have added the peel off message to the central silver pearl layer and finished off  with a buckle brad which I have filled with a mixture of embellishments. Hope you like my interpretation of this months sketch below is the original so why not play along!
