CPS Card Sketch 181

This is vaguely the sketch from CPS Card Sketches this week. I made it square rather than rectangular and shifted the central part slightly to one side.
This morning I was trying out some wax resist techniques and borrowed one of my granddaughter's chunky wax crayons to colour the daisy petals. It's all a little random and splodgy, but I quite like it. I then sponged some Stampin' Up ink in Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss over the the image, which is from Funstamps. I added a little Whispers pen watercolour to the stems and finally rubbed over the wax crayon to remove any ink which remained, so making the flowers pop a little more.
The ribbon was coloured with a Promarker and the white card beneath it embossed with Cuttlebug Random Dots.
