Freshly Made Sketches with Altenew

Hello, Hello!

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch designer this week is Jen Mitchell.  She always amazes with her creative CAS designs.  I love the bold elements in this sketch.

I went with a very bold and graphic design, using the gorgeous Wallpaper Art Stamp Set (that I have had in my stash for months and had not gotten around to using).

Once again, I got out my well loved watercolor palette, filled with Ken Oliver Colorbursts.  The flower is stamped in Versafine black ink on watercolor paper and then painted with the Colorbursts using the wet on wet technique.
For the background panel, I used a pencil to mark off a stripe along the right side.  I then traced around various sizes of circle dies with in the stripe.  I used a couple of shades of blue Colorbursts to paint within the stripe.  Once everything was thoroughly dry, I stamped the leaves in Versafine ink as well.  I fussy cut the flower out, added white gel pen to the stamens and added a few sequins to the card.
The inspiration for the card came from Altenew and their monthly challenge.

I am also linking up to Time Out Challenges~

In addition, I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, 'Anything Goes"
