This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 321. I used a set from MARKS FINEST PAPERS called "BRICK WALL" which is exactly what I have hit lately in trying to accomplish my goals.
I did not like what I started or even ended up with for Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 311 - Always Perfect Roses so I did a "do over" AGAIN. LOL. Maybe one day I will get it right.
Rose red pattern paper and perfect plum cs on a white base. I stamped the brick image in tuxedo black then the flower image in always artichoke and colored the flowers with copics. I cut the 4 squares 1 1/8 inch matted on rose red then on always artichoke after distressing the edges. I stamped the sentiment in tuxedo.
NOW I like how this turned out much better. I hate waste and I was so ready to file this in the trash.
