Freshly Made Sketches #423

Hello All!

We are back with a fabulous new Freshly Made Sketches sketch, this one from Kim.  I love Kim's clean style and she knows how to use die cuts like no other.

Here is your sketch; I stayed true to it for a change!

I used my new Paint a Poppy Stamp Set from Altenew.  What a beauty! I veered form the typical red/orange poppy color and decided on yellow.  I love the combo of yellow and gray and it has been too long since I used it.  In addition, yellow is a dominant color in this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge.  The poppy image was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black Ink on watercolor paper and colored with Daniel Smith  Watercolors.  I added a branch of leaves from the same set to the gray sentiment panel to frame the sentiment.  In addition, I added a small bunch of flowers from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Extra Special Stamp Set.
I am also linking up to this month's The Flower Challenge~
