CC&S - Challenge #14 - Sketch

Hi there! Jacqueline has a corker of a sketch for you this week over at CAS - Colours and Sketches!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
 
Here is the sketch -
 
 
Now, I must admit this had me stumped for quite some time and I had just too many different ideas for this one. So, I sat down and really stripped back those ideas and went with a very basic design. At the end of it, I loved it.
 
Here is my DT card -
 
 
I tried a new technique called Ghost Stamping. This is a great technique for light or dark Kraft paper. I used my Mixed Bunch stamp and inked it up with Whisper White and just stamped directly onto my cardstock. I then inked it up with Rose Red and stamped over the top but just off centre a little. I think it has turned out really pretty.
 
I wanted a very simple sentiment as I didn't want to take any thunder from my pretty flowers. Stamped with Whisper White and is from my Friendly Phrases set.
 
Now! I cannot wait to see how you interpret this sketch. You will love the inspiration from the other DT members as well so make sure you check them out.
 
Thanks for looking xx
