Freshly Made Sketches in Pastels

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  It is time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week I happen to be the hostess and I have a pretty simple sketch for you.  I hope you like it.

I am also Guest Designing for The Color Throwdown.  The colors this week lend themselves very well to florals~

Here is the sketch~

This gorgeous bouquet, from Sweet n Sassy Stamps' Mason Jar Bouquet Stamp Set,  was stamped in Versafine ink and watercolored with one of my favorite mediums, Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  Side note, I had my Colorbursts all in a pretty half pan with a beautiful swatch in the lid.  I went to a crafty gathering, taking my Colorbursts with me.  Unbeknownst to me, I ended up with the pan upside down.  Needless to say, the colors where a big, mixed up mess.  Oh, did I mention I had just refilled the pans and had added drops of water to the pans???
Of course, I had to empty all of the pans and start over.  I refilled and swatched them the other night, as I was itching to use them again.  So here they are, fresh and beautiful, lol!

FYI, I was just shopping (again) at Dick Blick and their Colorbursts are a great price right now.
Anywho, I finished the card with a Sahara Sand card base (remember that SU color?) some scrap patterned paper and Altenew gold washi tape-annnnnnd, some sequins.

I hope you check out the rest of the inspiration at FMS; the team always amazes me with their collective talent!

Hope to see you in the gallery!
