Friday Sketchers

Another nice sketch from Friday Sketchers this week by Claudia, a bit different and I wasn't sure how I could work it at first, but relatively happy with the finished article returning to my safety zone of botanical......well I have done two cutise this week so don't want to go OTT.

DP's are a new double sided one I picked up last week from My Minds Eye and I used the reverse for the diagonal strip with an edging using MS arch lattice punch. The background for my image has been Glimmer Misted with tiger lily, pineapple and gold, my main image is Penny Black3939K stamped with a Kaleidoscope green rainbow pad and embossed with detail clear. Then I randomly stamped diamonds using Hero G3316 with Brilliance rocket red gold which I also embossed with detail clear. Crystal stickes have been added to the two flower heads and ribbon and buttons down the side and........ I'm gonna give away a secret here ........ I over inked my image and got a shadow down the stems, hence the ribbon across the image as well !
