Lucy's Lovely Lines challenge 2

 Lucy Abrams has set her second sketch challenge over at the Lily Pad Blog and although I am not a lover of sketch challenges I decided to have a go. ( I always find them a bit daunting and much prefer colour challenges.)

I really love this Flower and Vase digital image from Tiffany Doodles  and knew it would work perfectly if I added another flower image to the vase,  I just copied and pasted the complete image and then reversed it to get the second flower.  I have coloured with copics and highlighted with an Inkssentials Gel pen.


















Hope you are enjoying your week, I am hoping the weather is going to improve this weekend as both my son and daughter are going to the Glastonbury Music Festival.  They have both been a few times before and agree that its much more fun camping if its dry.  A couple of years ago Francesca went and it rained hard the whole weekend the mud was so deep in places that it actually went over the top of her wellington boots. It doesn't sound like much fun to me :0(

I love the background on your card and what a neat idea to duplicate the flower. I think it adds so much to your card.

P.S. I am not much of a camper but I sure don't like it in the cold or rain so praying they will have beautiful weather :-)
