Sweet Sunday Sketch #73

Happy Sunday!!! I hope you've had a fabulous weekend. It's time for another wonderful sketch from Karen.. So I hope you'll be able to play along.

Here's my card for today:-

And here is Karen's gorgeous sketch:-

I've gone for a little bit of Water Colouring today.... and I had HEAPS of fun!!!!

I've started out with some Baja Breeze and added a splash of Basic Grey and Very Vanilla to the mix.
The Rose from Fifth Avenue Floral is stamped in Stazon then coloured with my Aqua Painter and Baja Breeze Ink. The base layer of Baja has had the Rose from Fifth Ave Floral stamped over it in Versamark as has the Very Vanilla strip, then I added a layer of Baja Breeze DSP and a little Ribbon and Bling to finish it off.

I'm actually really happy with how it turned out and actually have a little someone in mind for this one, so I hope they like it.

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stamper's for some amazing inspiration:-
And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.
