Don't you just love this week's image? It's "A Lovely Couple". This week's Challenge #15 at Softpencil is to use your favorite sketch. It's hard to pick a favorite. I like this one because of the layering, and I thought it fit this week's digi image perfectly. I have used this one before, and it is from Mojo Monday #116. Instead of circles, I used hearts.
The edges of the butterfly were inked. I placed pop dots under the sentiment heart and "A Lovely Couple" image which was colored with watercolor pencils and Copics. (Santa brought me Copics for Christmas :D Yay!)
Do you like my rose? I call it my "accidental" rose! I cut some scalloped circles free-hand out of pink tissue paper, twisted, layered, and glued them together. Then I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist. Some of the petals stuck together after being sprayed, so I picked up the nearest pencil to separate them. The pencil I picked up was an orange watercolor pencil. Because the petals were wet, the orange color adhered to them. I didn't mean for this to happen, but I decided that I liked the look, so I added some more!
I hope you'll join us at Softpencil's Challenge #15 this week and post your card at Paper Craft Planet! You can even "borrow" the sketch I used!
