It's SKETCH time at Crafting When You Can-sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps

 This week at Crafting When You Can (CWWC) we are being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  The Twist with our Challenge #115 is that you are to use a provided SKETCH-see example.  I got to use the lovely Orchid Enchantress and was thrilled because it was one of the images I didn't already have!  I always work on coloring the images first when working with a sketch and hope that the colors that I've used with work/match some of the many design papers that I have in my stash.  The inside of the orchid is actually a reddish deep purple and I love the warm yummy...maize... color of the petals.  That's a perfect word for the color!  So even though the purples and the creamy yellow/loden greens don't seem to work I was so pleased with the colors.  I used some white floral die cut sprays, coloring them green with my copics then added the purple button touch.  I put clear acrylic drops on the leaves and petals for dew drops.  On the inside I used the double sided paper so it coordinated with the panels in the front.
I hope you will join us over at Crafting When We Can and have lots of fun!
