Waterlilies and Dragonflies

It's Wednesday, which means it is time for a "What If? Wednesday Sketch".  You have two weeks to enter your card using the sketch posted on the Repeat Impressions blog...The House That Stamps Built.  All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate.  I hope you'll play along with us.

This week's sketch looks like this:

Well you already can see, I deviated from the sketch like I always do.  Sketches to me are starting points, and if your design takes you from that starting point it is okay.  At least that's how I justified it.

I stamped the beautiful Repeat Impressions image "Waterlilies and Dragonflies" (9204-M) with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink.  I colored the image with Copic markers and Spectrum Noir Markers (pinks).  I added a few highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  Then to really give this circled image some sparkle I sprayed it with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko. 

Since my original image was a circle, I then took the liberty of making the panel below it with a Nestabilities lace circle die made from white cardstock. I pop-dotted the image onto this.  The larger panel is from patterned paper from Pebbles.  It is framed with white and pink cardstock.  A sheer white ribbon and bow, along with three clear glass beads (inspired by the sketch, yet moved) complete this card.

Don't miss seeing some great cards using this sketch from the other Rock Stars:
