A Freshly Made Sketch from Jacquie

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
I don't know about you, but I am starting to loose track of days.  Goodness this post almost did not happen!
 Jacquie has a wonderful and versatile CAS sketch for us today.  Her ability to do CAS with dies is amazing! 

This go around, I tried to go pastel, something that I do not find easy.
Here is your sketch~

The diamond shape on the sketch really caught my eye but I do not have diamond dies.  I ended up going with my go to, scalloped rectangle dies.  The image is brand new from Sweet n Sassy Stamps and is from the set Country Garden Stamp Set.  This set is right up my alley!  The image is colored with Copics and fussy cut out.
I used a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper for my background and painted a wash of pinky peach (Tangerine) and yellow (Naples Yellow) Colorburst Watercolors on it.  I then diecut the scallop rectangle from the watercolored panel and cut another from white cardstock, then used the inlaid die technique to finish the background off.  The image was popped up on dimensionals and the diecut was stacked.
That's it for me!  Now it is your turn.  Head over to the blog for more inspiration from the uber talented team and then join us!
