Here's my take on Kim's Sketch Challenge for this week. The paper choice was from a kit a friend had put together, not colors or patterns I would normally go for.... so I thought a sketch challenge would be perfect to help me put them together. I flipped the sketch on it's side, but kept true to the layout. I paper pieced the candles and colored the flames with a light yellow Copic, then added a little glitter glue for some glitz. The colors were quite bright so I also sponged some brown around the edges, after I did that, I wished I had left it clean. But I'm sharing it anyway! The candles image I also airbrushed around the edges and added some doodles before I sponged the brown. Final Card size is an A2.
