I saw the Sketch Challenge over at Always Playing with Papers and I liked what I saw.
I don't think I have played with a Sketch layout before but theres a first time for everything. Lot more thought has to go into something like this.
Unlike the majority of my cards that I just make what I want and find a challenge to fit it here the rules are already set.
I used a background paper that I bought from Papertrey in a set of white and gold designs This one being with big gold dots. The next three layers were all cut with stitch rectangle and circle dies. The green is a pale green weave look paper. The next layer is a piece of watercolour paper that I had previous sprayed with watercolour sprays in colours pink, orange and a smudge of yellow.
This panel behind the stamped and embossed flower was a great match up with the colours I watercolored the flower image with.
The flower stamp is one of the Altenew flowers and I have to say one of my favourite to look at, just so soft and wonderful lines to it.
I spent an afternoon painting this flower that was stamped and embossed in either gold or white on scraps of watercolour paper with my Kuretake watercolours. Whenever I go back to using these I remember why I love them so much. Maybe not so easy to set up as the watercolour pens but such a pleasure to use. The paint is so creamy and delicious to use and results just breathtaking.
I added the watercolour panel with fun foam behind it as I had added the three little gold tags and they would have caused a bump in the watercolour layer. The gold tags were just hand cut as I don't have tag dies (or at least I don't think I have!!)
Finished off with the small 'Celebrate' die cut that had a long swirl in front and behind but I cut off the one in front as I didn't feel it worked this particular time.
I was very happy with the end result.

Thank you for coming to have a look and I hope you visit again soon.
