Just Add Ink #548 Sketch


Hello all,
this week at Just Add Ink we are asking you to Just Add a Sketch from Jan. I decided to dual purpose my project - it would get me ahead for Mother's Day (coming up here in early May) and also give some love to a neglected flower set from 2020. I do love flowers sets and can never resist acquiring one, two...or perhaps more new ones. Here's the sketch.
This is what I came up with.

My interpretation of the sketch is a bit loose particularly in the layering of the elements, but basically the red rose = the central rounded square, the circle = the lattice behind the rose, and the twine and sentiment = long central horizontal element.

I kept the background and colour palette simple, as I wanted all the attention on the rose. Colouring the rose red certainly achieves that aim! This was really all about the colours and colouring - an ink brayered, stamped and splattered background and the flower coloured with SU! Blends. The die cut lattice grounds the rose and adds in some detail.

Wink of Stella on the rose and some gems finished the project off.

The Just Add Ink team always have lots of fabulous projects to show you so please go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.
