SWAT: Sketch and a twist stickers

This week's SWAT sketch has a twist, use those stickers. I decided to mix some realistic flowers  from Cosmo Cricket with some abstract style flowers from Basic Grey. Flowers are definitely one of my favorite things to add to layouts.

I used a sheet of My Mind's eye Kraft Funday as my base, and a Cosmo cricket paper as a anchor for my photos. Budgie got a lollipop from the Hammond's Candy tour, and she loved getting to eat a big lollipop. She just happened to wear a dress that matched her treat, which probably wasn't that unlikely, since she always picks pink when she has a choice.

The Basic Grey flowers were too pale for the layout, so I darkened them with Prismacolor colored pencils. If stickers are not glossy, it is easy to adjust the color with pencils. If they are glossy, some acrylic gloss or ink would have worked as well.

I hope you like my take on the challenge! Here's the so you can play at SWAT.
