Lovely For You (Beate's Sketch)

Well, it's time for another weekend sketch challenge from Beate over at fresh & fun! Since I will probably be too busy to stamp this weekend (who am I kidding - every weekend!) I thought I should give it a try today! I decided to break in another new stamp set. This is the Oh, So Lovely level 1 hostess set I chose with my birthday order. From the moment I saw it I fell in love with this poppy image . . . I started by stamping the poppy on vellum using brown StazOn ink. I stamped on both sides of the vellum in order to get the flowers to point in different directions. Then I watercolored with my aquapainter and celery, saffron, and rose red inks. I attached the vellum to a panel of Whisper White cs using pewter brads from the vintage collection. I then matted that panel onto Rose Red and Celery cs. Next I stamped the other two images from this set onto watercolor paper using brown StazOn. I watercolored them as well, and punched out a portion using my 1" circle punch. I used my 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches to create mats for these. I took a So Saffron card base and layered onto it some rose red patterned paper from the Palette O' Prints collection, which I notched the corners of using my 1/4" circle punch. I layered everything together using dimensionals, and added the sentiment (from Happy Everything) which I stamped in chocolate ink on white cs and punched out using the Word Window punch. I am very pleased with the way this card turned out! My new project will be swap cards with the new Tapestry collection, so stay tuned! *wink*
