Freshly Made Sketches #449

It's Wednesday, and that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Cécile is our hostess for this week. I know you will have fun with this sketch and the different ways you can interpret it. I did a rather loose interpretation, as you can see!

I am thrilled for Lori Craig, who recently collaborated with Taylored Expressions on a new kit: Field Notes. It was so popular, that I believe the kit is already sold out! I was fortunate enough to grab one, and I am so glad! It's a fabulous kit, with so many elements, but mostly, of course, all the stamps from Lori's sketchbook, which are beautiful! 

I stamped the coneflower from the Sketchbook Florals set using Brutus Monroe Raven ink on the TE 110# watercolor paper especially for Karin markers. I then watercolored using a water brush and a few of my Karins. While I have never seen a coneflower with these colors, I love how it turned out. I cut it out with the matching die. I made a couple of little watercolor blobs for the big triangles in the sketch, and used one of the stamps from the Field Notes set for the smaller triangle. I added my sentiment from the Florals stamp set on the flipside. Finally, I gave the entire floral image a light coat of Wink of Stella for a sweet sparkly finish.
I hope you will join us with your take on the sketch this week! Our challenge is open until 3 PM EDT on Monday, August 24. Click on the links on the FMS blog by each photo to see some fun interpretations from my teammates!


  1. This is so pretty - and so very artsy! Very cool image and you watercolored perfectly! I may have to check out these Karins!

  2. Such a lovely use of this flower! It's beautifully colored - and I love the soft colors and the bit of pattern behind it.

  3. I adore that beautiful floral image and you've used it to create a gorgeous card! Such a wonderful take on the sketch.

  4. This is such a beautiful card Judy! I just love the coneflower (they're one of my favourites)! Love the background you've created as well! So soft and warm!

  5. Really lovely! You've given you card softness with the light watercoloring you've given your flower and background.
