CPS Sketch # 187 - Flourishes, LLC

Hello!  It's time for a CPS sketch project again.  This week's sketch is sponsored by Flourishes, LLC.  Here's my take on the sketch...


I stamped the lily directly on the central circle panel and lightly colored with pink.  I used a sponge to ink over the lily with Broken China Distress ink to give the illusion of water.  Stamping the lily again on a piece of cardstock, I colored in detail with Copic markers and carefully trimmed out with precision scissors.  I also stamped one of the lily pads, colored with Copics and trimmed from cardstock.  I adhered it over the center waterlily to peak out of the bottom.  This trimmed waterlily was popped up with dimensional tape over the central image.

Tip: To give added dimension, gently bend the tips of the flower upward from the surface of the card.
