Artful INKables Challenge 2!

Aloha! My name is Jennifer Muraoka (KiyomiKrafts). I'll be your hostess for the Artful INKables Design Team Challenge! My assignment ~ a sketch. So here is my sketch...

About Artful INKables Challenges:

Every other week Kristin and her DT will post a challenge with rotating themes onto the store blog. We would be so pleased to have you play along! If you should decide to join us, please, include ARTINK (all capitals) in the keywords when you upload on SCS. By having consistent keywords, we will be sure not to miss anyone's wonderful creations! As an alternative, feel free to add a link to your creation in the comments section of this post. All the design team members (aka INK girls) will be participating in these challenges. Please take a minute, if you have the time, to see what they have created. You can also link your card in the comments of any INK girl's challenge post.

We would love to see all of you join in the fun. This is NOT a contest. No pressure. No deadlines. The challenges are simply for creative inspiration and FUN only!!! So this is your official invitation to get INKy with us!!!

So here is my card that I made with my sketch. I used Sweet Blush by Papertrey Ink for the base of the card. I layered Lily Kate and distressed the edges with my distressing tool from SU. The focal flower is actually 4 of the smaller flowers pieced together. They overlap beautifully to create this one big flower. This is just one of the reasons why I love AI stamps so much. Many of Kristin's stamps can be altered and modified to create bigger focal images or scaled down to create smaller images. The images can take on so many shapes and forms. There is also a small daisy like image in this set; it also works beautiful pieced together to create one BIG flower.

Copics used...
