Tuesday Morning Sketches #503

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I would really appreciate you leaving me a comment, even if you just say hi so that I know you were here.  The latest sketch is at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is by Andrea.  I think you're going to enjoy this sketch - I sure did.

My card features stamps and paper from the May 2019 Simon Says Stamp kit.  This is a gorgeous kit that I'm sure is sold out by now, but the elements are available separately.

I tried my very best to watercolor the flower in the center like the flowers/butterflies on this paper by Moda Scrap.  It is stunning.  I came a little close.  Honestly I think I would have needed liquid watercolors to get that right color match.  But I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  Instead of putting the sentiment in another box I just stamped it directly onto the card base.

I hope to see you over at the TMS blog to join us.  Have a great day!
