Just Magnolia Week 17 Challenge

The Just Magnolia Week 17 challenge is a sketch challenge. I really like doing these challenges. I find it helps me with compostion and colour choice. I am a scientist at heart so I find I need some sort of procedure to get me going. A sketch is just that to me, a procedure.

I've been on a purple kick lately. Even though I chose patterned paper with pink in it and colored my Tilda with pinks, I had to use a Pale Plum cardstock. I'm not sure if it actually goes together. What do you think? Does it look OK? This is my first time using Flower Soft and I have to say....LOVE IT!!! It isn't easy to find this product here in Canada so I finally broke down and ordered a few jars from All That Scraps (any fellow Canadians, I recommend buying from here, you will get to best bang for your buck with shipping and all). Needless to say, I will be placing another order very soon for more colors. Below is a picture of the copic markers I used.


Recipe:

Stamps: #287 Tilda Picking Lilacs, SU Warm Words set
Paper: SU Pale Plum, Basic Grey Sugared, CC Designs Copic White Cardstock, SU Whisper White
Ink: SU Pretty in Pink & Pale Plum, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Flowers from stash, 7 Gypies leaves, Dew drops colored with copic marker, SU Filigree brads with rhinestone brads in center, flower soft spring mix
