Tuesday Morning Sketches #563

Hello!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's just a great sketch.  Very classic elements.

This card features the July Small DOM by Spellbinders.

I decided I needed to try some easy watercolor techniques.  I'm not great at it and I ended up with something that looks like water.  That wasn't my intention but it's pretty anyway!  On the circle mat I used Essential Glimmer Circles with some silver foil.  The sentiment is Everyday Sentiments II Glimmer plates.  It's hard to see the shine of the foil in the photograph, but it's so pretty in person.

This card was fun to make.  Still very primitive with my watercolor, but I guess that's okay.

I do hope to see you over at the TMS blog and that you'll join in our challenge.  Leave the team some love while you're there, too.

I know how it is easy to disparage your own work, but I love your watercolouring, it has the beautiful watercolour look and your central flower has shading too, with the beautiful background. Love the card.
Take care
