FMS280 by Jen Timko | Botanical Garden Stamp Set by Altenew, Healing Wings by Skipping Stones DesignEver see a sketch and know that whatever you make with it will be awesome?  That is how I felt the minute I saw this one from Freshly Made Sketches.  The incredible Linda Callahan created this beauty and the possibilities are endless!

I thought these gorgeous images from the Botanical Garden would be great for the sketch.  I stamped them onto Canson Watercolor Paper using Versafine Ink.  Then I colored using Winsor and Newton Watercolor Paints.  I just got these and was swatching them when I thought I should just break them in and see what happened.  I kind of love the possibilities!!  Once I was done coloring the images, I cut them out to see how they looked for the sketch.  I felt like they needed a little bit of a background so I added a little more color behind them before stamping the sentiment.  I love this one!!  And it is perfect for my friend that will receive this card.

Our design team has done their always excellent job this week and you will be so inspired.  I hope you will have as much fun with this sketch as I did.  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  See you soon!

FMS275 - Amazing by Jen Timko | Botanical Garden Stamp Set by Altenew, Zig Clean Color Markers, WatercoloringAs a programming note, if you are looking for day 2 of the Newton’s Nook February Release it will be up in a second post.  For this card, I’m working with another fantastic sketch for Freshly Made Sketches created by the queen of layers, Narelle.  The way she has layered this sketch speaks to how she always has the most lovely details.

When I saw the scallop, I immediately thought of this flower from Altenew’s Botanical Garden set.  I pulled out my Zig again and this time focused on Peacock Blue.  Love that blue!  I aded a little yellow in the center and combined greens for the leaves but generally some super quick coloring.  With the blue being so striking, I chose this pale background, Fog from Simon Says Stamp.  Using the scraps from where I colored the flower, I cut two banners and colored one with the green and left one plain.  Finally I added this little Paper Pumpkin sentiment and some Basic Pearls.  It was nice to stretch into a different set of colors this week and I think this sketch is going to be fun for everyone.

Back in just a few with today’s release card.  You will be “egg-cited” to see it!  Thanks for stopping in today.
