SKETCH CHALLENGE # 378.
I needed a day to think on the colors chosen for Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 368 = elegant, grapes, & melons.
I was hesitant to try the technique chosen on Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 370 - Faux Patina but decided to give it another try. I used stylized flowers embossing folder and inked the negative side with wisteria wonder then used daubers to ink the raised portions with melon mambo and elegant eggplant. Then I used my versamark pen to some of the raised sections and embossed gold embossing powder. I like how this turned out but still NOT sure I like these colors together. Oh well that is why they are called CHALLENGES right? LOL
