A Freshly Made Sketch and Celebration!

Hello All!

Welcome to our celebration of 400 sketches at  Freshly Made Sketches!
Wow!  Just Wow! Lesley Croghan started this challenge waaaay back (8 years back!). Did you know there are still 2 original DT members on the team?!   I have been playing on again off again since the beginning. 
I feel so blessed to 
now be designing for the team!  

This week's sketch is actually FMS's 1st AND 100th sketch!

I actually remember this sketch, and boy, those rectangles threw me off back then!  As you can see, I took some liberties with them this go around and actually painted them using some awesome Shimmerz Paints products.
The image is brand new from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps from the Tea for Two Clear Stamp Set.  I colored  the bunny and his critter friend with Copics.  I then fussy cut the image out.
My background was done on watercolor paper; I used new to me products- Shimmerz Paints Inklingz Bahama Mama and Colorz Spray Well Blue Me Down.  To keep the color somewhat contained, I used a A Colorful Life Marvelous Mask Rectangle when applying each background color.
My horizontal panel is on vellum.  I brushed on some Miner Miner 49er gold shimmery watercolor.
Once that was dry, I added a strip of Altenew Gold Trim Washi.
Some sequins finish it off! 
We hope you join us for the challenge, especially during this special month!  Stay tuned!  Lots more is planned!
