Midnight Madness Sketch challenge #2



This is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #2. You can find that challenge here. I used my new EK punch, these great gold leather leaves, and some grunge board. The rose is from Flourishes as is the flourishy background. I love black, white, and red as a color combo and thought it fit well into my design. The added gold pen added a touch of glamour. I used my copic markers to do the coloring. I would love to take one of those copic classes to improve on my skills, but I am doing a lot of practicing. I used the 00 pen to lighten up areas on the rose and I also used a white galaxy marker to make the highlights on the rose.
