Freshly Made Sketches.....thinking of you

Hello Peeps!!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I used the flower image from the Stampin Up Birthday Blooms stamp set. I colored it using the new in color Sweet Sugarplum. I used Old Olive for the leaves and Crushed Curry for the stamens. I fussy cut it out and  sit aside to make the rest of the card.

The blue panel I made using some watercolored paper and a couple of colors, I used Pool Party and Pacific Point, I wet my water color paper and then using a wide brush added my ink, drying in between colors with my heat tool.
I then added lots of drops of water and let them set a bit before dabbing off with a paper towel. .

I glued this piece to my white card base.
The flower is added to the card using several dimensionals. 
I added some silver thread before adding the flower and then a few silver sequins.

The sentiment is from the Smarty Pants set.

Thanks for stopping by today. 


For your viewing pleasure,

My sweet Audrey:
