US227 Morning Meadow Trust God

This weekend's challenge at Unscripted Sketches has a nice basic layout. Imagine it layered with some of your favorite patterned papers or perhaps featuring a favorite ribbon as the main focal point. What will you do with it?

I've recently begun following a blog written by Heather Telford. Heather shares beautiful no-layer and minimally layered greeting cards. Sometimes she will share cards where she has heat embossed an image and then stamped the same image again in coordinating colors. The background is usually sponged and/or brayered in to complete the 'scene'. I copied this technique for the floral panel you see here. It was easy and I just love the overall softness of the scene. I hope you like it, too. :)
