CYCI151 - You Are Loved!

We have a sketch for you this week at CYCI! I definitely had fun with this one. I started out with a whole different card... the pieces are still sitting on my desk. This sketch had a mind of its own. :)

The focal point on this card is the beautiful jar of poppies from Unity's Jar of Hope kit. I watercolored it on kraft card stock using my ZIG clean color real brush markers directly on the card stock. I blended the color out just a bit and loved the way it turned out! The background was made using the same stamp. I stamped it multiple times in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed white detail embossing powder. The sentiment is another kit from Unity called Bitty Regards. I inked the sentiment up using Bermuda Bay and Real Red markers.

Here's a close-up of the pretty poppies!
