Flower Challenge #7 - Reminder

How time flies! We are already half way through this month's Flower Challenge #7, which is our very first sketch.

Here's my take on the sketch:

My main image on this card is actually all hand drawn. I've been inspired by watching Kim Dellow's You Tube videos - her Art Slices. She did one recently where she drew a pattern on a piece of paper and it was so mesmerising to see it come together I felt inspired to try myself.

I took a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock and drew lines on it at half inch intervals in pencil and then took my Copic multiliner and started adding in details in pen. I then coloured in a diamond with some Copic markers:

I die cut out the diamond shape with two of my Simon Says Stamp double stitched square dies. I cut a strip of lavender cardstock and added some stitched details along the edge with my Reverse Confetti dies. It was then simple to put together with some foam tape. A sentiment along the bottom with my Many Mini Messages set and then some enamel accents was all that was needed.

Oh Ruth, this is so beautifully creative, your focal image looks like a beautiful ceramic tile!!
I don't think I have a good enough steady hand to hand draw those lines, you did a fantastic job on yours.
Beautifully done!!!
