Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #65

WOW I'm sooo excited that I've been back on the challenge wagon again!!! To have the time to play has been super wonderful and I'm really enjoying the "stretching" of my crafting ability.
This week I needed a card for my best friends daughter for her sweet 5th birthday! I had the layout already done but then scratched it when I saw this great sketch HERE and decided to make another!! (anyone else do that??)

On looking at the FABULOUS design teams creations I came across this groovy new technique that I hadn't seen..... Water-colour wash. Go HERE to Artistic Avenger (one of the coolest blogs I've seen, LOVE IT!!!) and see where I got the inspiration from and step by step instructions on How to!

I'm going to give this tech another go, I really love how different it is and the effect you can get!!
I wanted to add a little sparkle so Dazzling diamonds certainly fits for the candle flame. Other than that some spritzing and sewing and roughing and the card is ready!

I hope Rose likes it!!! More importantly I hope Heather does! The pressure to make amazing cards for your fabbo friends/customers is overwhelming sometimes!!! I'm often told that people struggle to make me a card due to the PRESSURE but it sure goes both ways when the shoe is on the other foot and I need to come up with some MASTER PIECE!!! Funny how we work isn't it!!??
Well enjoy your Sunday my fellow crafting friends,

Fantastic Sharnee! Love your candle panel. This technique looks fab in the colours you have chosen. The blingy flames are awesome too. :)
