Brayered sketch

Here's the card I did for this week's Sketch Challenge. If you've never checked out Michelle Zindorf's work (zindorf on SCS), RUN to her gallery now! She is a true artist! This card was heavily influenced by her work. What'd I do? I took 2 pieces of Soft Sky cs and first brayered with Sky ink. Then I brayered them with Blue Bayou and just kinda kept going back and forth until it blended well and there were no obvious lines. I then stamped an image from Garden Silhouettes in black and highlighted parts of the flowers with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Gina K set, Make a Wish. I split it up and made the "peace & comfort" part of it a focal point by putting it in a hardware frame. I also stamped the same flower on that sentiment panel in Sky, plus I sponged it with Bayou. The larger Bayou panel was sponged w/ Bayou ink and the card base was sponged with Sky for some extra "depth".
Ok, after a long, HOT afternoon of watching 2 of the boys play baseball, I'm pooped! Going to go relax now and hopefully stamp later! Have a great weekend!!
