Thinking of you

 Time to get my hands a little dirty with technique. This was fun for Wednesdays' Sketch challenge with My Favorite Things. I decided to do the "Faux Linen" technique and color up this beautiful flower with a copic technique. Here is the picture-by-picture....how-to!
 First cut out the glossy paper with the "Oval Decorative Doily Die-namics". I used the cracked glass image from the "Vintage Cameo" set  and stamped with memento ink.
 Take your sanding block and sand in both horizontal and vertical directions. This gives a cross hatch pattern to your glossy surface.
 Sponge distress ink over the surface. This will highlight the sanded pattern.
 I took this flourish from the "Own your Story" stamp set and inked it in brushed corduroy ink.
 I stamped the "Inspired by Flowers Set 4" with memento ink.
 I filled my waterbrush with copic colorless blender solution and then painted my various inks into place.
 To add a little more texture I stamped a text stamp on some canvas with versacraft ink.



 So here is a look at the sketch. Be sure to check out all the designer's samples that are playing along. You can find them all on the MFT blog!
