A FMS Sketch and Color Throwdown

Hello, Hello!

Time seems to be zooming by; it is the second Wednesday of April already!  One of my favorite things about Wednesdays are all of the new challenges that start.
This week's colors at The Color Throwdown are everything spring.  I used the fabulous Freshly Made Sketches sketch, courtesy of Jen M. She makes every card look easy peasy!  And today, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has a 'No Designer Paper' challenge. 

Here is your FMS sketch~

And here are your Color Throwdown colors~

Well, both the sketch and the colors were a delight to work with!  The colors shouted florals to me, so it was just a matter of which florals to use.  I settled on Altenew's Garden Treasure and Beautiful Day stamp sets.
I stamped the leaves in a light Memento ink and the large flower on watercolor paper using Versafine black ink.  Then, in an attempt to do some loose watercoloring, I used my Ken Oliver Colorbursts and a couple of water brushes to color the images.   I also die cut an Altenew heart and watercolored it.
The smaller flowers were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  These flowers were fussy cut, while the larger images were die cut.  I love the work of Erum Tasneem and tried a version of a watercolored background panel similar to her style.  I actually really love how it turned out!
OK, head on over to both challenge blogs- Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown- to play along!  Check out the other CT team members with their amazing creations!

I am linking up to Double D Challenge, which has a beautiful inspiration photo.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!
