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.
