Card Patterns Challenge #57


I promised myself I would try new challenges this year and I am. I recently found the Card Patterns blog and while I have loved every sketch I have only managed to get 2 sketches done....this being the 2nd.

This week was also a bonus for me as it is sponsored by Hero Arts and well....we all know how much I LOVE HERO ARTS! I just bought the Dogwood stamp by Hero and couldn't wait to play with it. I have stamped it in many colors and colored it in many mediums. Jen McGuire had colored it in red a while back and I loved it so I attempted marker shading in red with it (I color/shade terrible in marker and I am trying to improve so that I can justify buying some Copics). I added glossy accents for shimmer. It's so pretty in real life.

More to come....but my laptop is not working properly right now.
