RIC and CASE This Sketch

I won’t waste time babbling, but I love this dual challenge – a great partnership with RIC and CASE this Sketch!

This card came about relatively quickly, I was predominantly inspired by obviously not only the challenges themselves, but Joni Andaya on the RIC DT and decided to set about making it my own.

The black panel is dry embossed, it’s actually Coredinations paper with white core, once I sanded it a bit deeper it really took on an alternate type of chalkboard look.  The flowers are hand watercolored with Distress Inks – Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon, Barn Door, and Fired Brick.  The darker centers are Winsor & Newton in Ultramarine 660 WC with some white gel pen.  The leaves are Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, and Forest Moss.  Sequins and Pearls finish.  Oh and some Perfect Pearls Mists, here’s a close up:

The leaves have Green Patina and the flowers have Biscotti.

Thanks so much for joining me, have a great day!
