Atlantic Hearts Sketch #259 With Brushos and Twinkling H2O Paints

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week gives you a choice of country maps to feature in your project.  My card was made with my California sister in mind and I may actually send it to her!  I printed the greeting with my laser printer and used my Minc machine to apply gold foil to it.

The background panel was created with Ultramarine and Turquoise Brusho crystals.  The United States map was black embossed and then painted with Twinkling H2O paints (Razzleberry, Tanzanite and Blue Zircon) which have a wonderful shimmer to them which didn't photograph well.  The map panel is framed with Gold Metallic Foil and I drew a line on the map with a Gold Metallic Marker.

Here are some of the Atlantic Hearts Sketches that you can try this week:

If you would like to substitute your country map in a similar sketch it would be perfectly fine.  We would love to see what you can do!  Our challenge runs until Monday night, April 15th.  Check out what the rest of the fabulous Design Team has to inspire you here.
