Duo challenge

  It's time for another Retrosketches #22 card. At least this week I am submitting my card on time. This is the fantastic sketch being featured this week.


 In addition, I am also playing along with ColourQ this week. Submitting a card for more than one challenge rarely happens for me. I think I may have done this one other time. The colors this week are out of my comfort zone. But seems like I have been playing more with different color combinations since SAF.



 I pretty much stayed true to the sketch.


An up close shot of the flower. I decided not to color the leaves because I was afraid I would mess them up. Coloring the flower was enough for me this go round. I stamped the image in Berry Sorbet and used Copics R 20 and R 22. The center was stamped in Orange Zest.

I am also going to submit this to Rhonda's Thankful Thursday blog. Thanks for stopping by.

What a gorgeous image choice for this colour challenge - it's perfect! I actually like the way the leaves aren't coloured, it adds alot of interest! That strip of ribbon is gorgeous in your white space too! Beautiful card!
