aug1I haven’t done a sketch challenge for ages!  They are always good fun.  If you haven’t done one before – you get a sketch of a design layout and you use that design to create your card.my sketch

This was the sketch of the design layout we had to use.

I decided to use my Agapanthus stamp from Woodware along with some colour toned Bazzill cardstock in a lilac theme.

I started by stamping and embossing in black my Agapanthus and die-cutting it into a circle shape – I was lucky as it just fitted inside my largestaug1a circle die!

I coloured my Agapanthus using Sakura Gel pens – three lilac shades – a purple stardust pen, lilac souffle and a purple glaze pen.  The combination of the three gave an interesting mix of shades and textures.  For the odd spaces in between I used a sky blue stardust pen.  The stem is hunter green glaze.aug1b

The greeting is from Woodware’s Salutations set.  A few dash and dot highlights with white and black pens added the finishing touches.

I am entering this into the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Blog Challenge

happy crafting
