Pink Hibiscus

This beautiful image is Hibiscus Spirit from Aurora Wings, our wonderful sponsor for March at the Outlawz Sketch Team.
This image has been coloured with ProMarkers in pastel shades, then I've added some depth with polychromos pencils.
Cut out with a Spellbinders die, I've added some pink ProMarker to the edge of the die to soften the bright white of the card.

Here's our sketch for today

The design paper is from Santoro and the scalloped edges lace is from Live and Love Crafts.

I've flipped the sketch for my inspiration card and added some hemp string and some white paper flowers.  The flowers I coloured with ProMarker as an experiment.  I was happy with the result so used them here :D

Hope to see you over at the challenge where we offer an extra prize if we get above 35 entries!
