Embrace Twinks

I wanted to have a try at Beate's week-end sketch and I really wanted a second try at the SCS color challenge #155, using Basic Black, River Rock and Whisper White. The third element I through in was using the TJ Technique Penciled Twinks. I also added some Faith Style!

IRL the Embrace flower isn't quite so bold. I stamped the flower in River Rock over all the River Rock layers, which I think helped tie it all together. I used to be so stingy with my layers, but I think I am finally letting go! I added a Pop-Up glue dot on the flower layer right side because it would look strange to be uneven. The flower has some sheen to it from the Twinkling H2Os. I also sponged some River Rock onto the White layer to soften it. I really like this card and hope you do to!
