Deconstructed Sketch #167, Shinhan Markers, and a lovely Rose

Close To My Heart recently added a wonderful line of Shinhan alcohol markers.
I have a lot to learn about this FUNN new addition.
So I jumped in with the inspiration of the Deconstructed Sketch #167.

Deconstructed Sketch No. 167

FLOWER Details
Stamped with CTMH Archival Black Ink on Autumn Terracotta card stock.
Using Shinhan Marigold and Warm Gray, the rose got a dose of depth.
Pretty glad the photo is a little blurred, at this point, but wanted to you to see a little closer.
The silver was added with a Silver Marker - looks better from a distance.
LEAF Details
Stamped on Daisy White card stock and inked with second generation Garden Green ink.
Variegated with Warm Gray Shinhan marker.

Learning is a process. 
It is FUNN to have you to share the process with.
