Abundant Hope Birthday

A new sketch to play along with weekly! The new "Demo Connection" spot, sort of like Facebook but for SU! demos only is hosting a weekly sketch challenge. Here is the Stampin' Connection Sketch Challenge one:

Play along if you would like! I love a sketch to get me rolling when ideas aren't coming.

I did modify it just a tad. I added ribbon to the bottom of the center section, then I couldn't add the sentiment where it was, I had to move it up. Colors are Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White. I again used a Texturz plate in the Big Shot for the background. On the indented side (? debossed) of the Whisper White cardstock I brayered over with Pretty in Pink ink, enhancing the weave pattern. The main image was stamped in Basic Black ink (Stazon would have been better!). I colored in with my markers in Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss. I'm no coloring expert by any means, but I generally try to go over it once fairly even toned without leaving lines. Then I come back to the areas I want darker and go over them again. You can also remove a little ink with a blender pen. Just don't go back and forth too much or the cardstock with get fuzzy.

Enjoy! Contact me with any questions. Off to bed for me, have a VERY early morning getting my Robotics team member on the bus.
