Here we are with the first sketch challenge of 2013 & I really like this one. I'm using one of the new spring stamps from Stampendous as I'm hankering after spring flowers already, aren't you? I've stamped  both the pansies & the sentiment (from the lovely Thoughtful wishes set) using Versafine & embossed with clear powder. I have water coloured the image using the ink from the Brilliance pads as they give you such a lovely pearly effect.Just splodge some ink onto an acrylic block & use a water colour brush, so therapeutic!! For the sketch I have taken 2 x 7.5" squares of card in green & lavender & cut them in half diagonally. Then simply stamp the pansy with the corresponding inkpads & put the 2 halves back together. Finish by layering the main image onto some darker purple card, add the ribbon & the elements.

Here's the original sketch why not play along!
As always my design is on display at Japonica if you want to take a closer look!
