SC247 Asian Flower Window

Sketch Day! Ug, haven't slept much in days so I could barely pull myself out of bed. Tried to keep it simple (well it is for me anyway!). I wanted to use purple and yellow today....but it looked so Halloween-ish. I found if I used Mustard for the yellow, then my brain didn't think "Halloween".

I brayered So Safron and a little More Mustard to the bottom of the panel. I brayered Perfect Plum and a little Elegant Eggplant to the top of the panel. I stamped my images and then game them "The Silhouette Treatment" (aka added white highlights). All the edges of the cardstock layers are sponged.

Paper: More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: So Safron, More Mustard, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Momento Tuxedo Black

Wow I love it.
It reminds me of a romantic night at a wonderful ocean side villa.

Gorgeous! You do such fabulous work with the brayering and blending of the colors. I really like how you used it as a branch out of a vase too! This is one set I really like and it is versatile in the use of the branch.
