It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm the hostess this week and I have a pretty simple sketch. I like the idea of simple ones that allow you to fill in with what inspires you.
I had a class over the weekend where we learned to make the watercolor backgrounds with a Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wash background stamp and I loved how mine turned out. I ended up using it for my card today so that I didn't lose it or spill something on it. lol I used Pool Party and Island Indigo, just tapped the pads on the stamp, and then sprayed it with water before I laid my paper on it. I love the result. Different amounts of ink and water give different results, so it's fun to play and see what you end up with! I added some die cut flowers and leaves from my favorite Ellen Hutson dies that had been accented with Wink of Stella. The sentiment is from a set from The Greeting Farm called Wood Friends.
My little cowgirl. We are starting a little homeschool curriculum and our first week is about cowboys/rodeos/deserts. :)
