I try and join in a card chain challenge every month which is being hosted by Gail in Norway at the moment whilst Deborah in America is having a short sabbatical .
The September challenge was to use any or all of the following:
A colour swatch of Vermillion/Scarlet/duckling
A sketch to follow
I managed to use 3 of the requirements highlighted in blue above.
I was in the mood for painting some flowers using my Ranger Distress Markers so sorted through my stash of stamps for a suitable one to use with the colours needed. This stamp is a single flower by Woodware 'Anemone' which I stamped once and then masked to stamp the second one and again masked to stamp the third flower. I used a selection of markers one leaf at a time laying down the colours and then using water and a fine tip brush to push the colour out to where I wanted it to be. It did take quite a while to complete but I love the result. I used a Britannia word die and an SU labels punch for the sentiment. I layered the card onto yellow and then red card stock.
I think The Doc liked the card too as he was a bit aghast when I said I was sending it to Asha in Portugal. His request of "Well can't you take a photo of it and send her the photo instead" fell on deaf ears though. Asha has received her card so I can show it now.
