Tuesday Morning Sketches #755

 Hey friends!  Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.  I enjoyed the creative outlet this card gave me while making it.

My card features Tonic Studios Craft Kit called Boots and Bouquets.  This is a lovely 2D set with stamps and matching dies.  Although it looks gray in the photo, the card I used is Blue Frost Pearlescent Card.  I enjoyed watercoloring with watercolor pencils and Zig Real Brush markers.  

The background die I used is also in the kit.  I stamped the image on Tim Holtz watercolor paper with embossing ink and used Raven detail embossing powder from Brutus Monroe.  When I finished coloring the images I "washed" the background with watery Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink.  I added some die cut leaves behind the oval cut image.  I embossed the sentiment on the same Blue Frost paper.  

I hope you can draw some inspiration from my card and that you'll play along.  Please leave some love for the team!

Hi Melissa! They just suspended my grandson's collegiate baseball due to rain, which gives me a bit of time to catch up on some long overdue comments. I really like the background die on this card, and your watercoloring is spot on! Love the card. Hugs, Debi
