I decided to use both the photo and the sketch and was inspired by the colours in the photo. These are not colours I usually work with so it was a real challenge for me not to use my preferred blue/green/purple palette. The roses also inspired my choice of stamp. It's from The Stamp Barn and I've had it in my stash for a while but not used it that much. Don't know why not as I love poppies and it stamps beautifully. As Remembrance Sunday falls this week I also thought it a very appropriate choice even though it's not coloured red!
Anyway, here is my rendition:
The background panels were created by merging three colours of mica spray mists and the outline of the stamped image was then highlighted with Promarkers and coloured pencils.
I would like to enter it into the following challenge:
