Flowers and Freshly Made Sketches #448

 Hello and Happy Wednesday!  

Well, after 5 months of not working (school nurse) it won't be long now and we will be back in school!  Seems like forever, honestly.  I am taking advantage of these last few days to craft!  I had fun with the latest Freshly Made Sketches sketch by Jen B.  I used a floral image from Sweet n Sassy Stamps, Peony Cluster.  

Here is your sketch~

 This peony image is such a beauty.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Neenah Solar white cs and then colored it with Copics.  To add a bit of background, I used a BG11 Copic and created striations from the peonies on down.  The diagonal stripe is also done with Copics.  I decided to do everything in markers instead of fussy cutting the top edge.  The sentiment is from the set, In This Together in Versafine Onyx Black ink.   Something we seem to need to be reminded of often.   

I added Moonshine Sequins from Simon Says Stamp and pale pink sequins.  The flowers have a generous coat of Wink of Stella on them.  

I am linking up to this month's The Flower Challenge~

 As well as Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Midsummer Blues. 

Head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog for all of the amazing inspiration and then join us!
