I've just discovered a new sketch challenge site called The Sketchy Challenges. I'm also playing along with the Basic Grey Challenge to use your favorite color scheme. I love pink and brown together, and it also gave me the chance to use up a little bit more of my Basic Grey "Sultry" scraps.
Here's Heidy's sketch. I think I will come back to this sketch again as it is just a beautiful layout, easy to cut and assemble, and of course I love the flowers!
I wanted to use this Magnolia horse that hadn't seen ink yet. This is a large stamp, so I knew that my center image would cover most of the background papers.
As I was working on the card, I thought that the background was a little too busy, so I modified the dp by sponging it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to tone it down. I also sponged along the edges of the image panel and the sentiment as the white was way too bright once I toned down the background paper.
Here's a scrap of the dp so you can see the original colors.
Stamps: Verve "Birthday Surprise" sentiment and image from Magnolia
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black, and Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Papers: White, pink, brown, dp from Basic Grey "Sultry"
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities dies, silver gel pen for metal accents on bridle, Recollections mini roses, Prima glittery rose, Sizzix flourish die cut
