Tuesday Morning Sketches #576

 Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a really simple one.  It's a great one for CAS cards or some interesting cut edges.  Let your imagination take wing!

My card features the monthly Mini Delight set for September called Petite Posy.  I recently watched a You Tube video by one of the artists at Altenew and took inspiration from her - making the most of little stamps. 

Someday I'm going to be good at watercolor but I guess I fake it okay.  I stamped the flower along the right edge with clear embossing ink on Ranger watercolor paper.  I then heat embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder.  I also stamped a couple of blooms on separate watercolor paper and used the die to cut them out.  I didn't have it lined up quite right so I trimmed it so that I close cut it.  I colored them using my Zig Real Brush markers and lots of water.  I mixed mustard with light carmine red to come up with this near Sonia rose color (my favorite rose in the world).  The leaves I used olive green and mid green.  Then I washed Frayed Burlap Distress Ink over the rest of the card.  Then with some less watered down color I got a few splatters.

Finally, I die cut the Hello die from Hero Arts from brushed gold card stock and then stamped a coordinating sentiment below it.

I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out.  I hope you like it, too.  Please head on over to the TMS blog and join in the fun!
