Happy Friday! Here's the look back the sketch #22!
I was in the mood for a bit of watercolouring and emboss resist. I started out with the lovely flower from a Donna Downey/Unity Stamps set called Insightful Meadow. I embossed that with white onto the cotton paper. Next, I used a few Distress Inks to watercolour the background. I used Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, and Pine Needles. I used an old punch by Stampin' Up for the greeting. Since I decided to use brown ink and brown cardstock for the greeting, I felt like I needed to bring in brown elsewhere on the card. I splattered a bit of Dark Chocolate ink on my panel and then mounted the whole thing on a thin white mat. I thought Kraft worked nicely for the card base.

Happy Friday! Here's the look back at sketch #21! This one is meant to be a square. Both of my samples were 4.5x4.5
My first card uses the One with Nature
set. I wanted something very simple, using bright colours. Colours here are by Papertrey Ink- Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate.
Even though I really liked the colours, I just wasn't feeling the first card. I decided to do another using cupcakes! I pulled out WPlus9's Sweet Treats
for the cupcakes and Fresh Baked
for the sentiment. I coloured the cupcakes with Copic markers. You can't see it in the photo, but I stamped cupcakes all over the black cardstock. I also jazzed up the yellow strip with some polka dots.

Here's the look back at Sketch #20!
I really wanted to use my new flamingo dies and the matching stamp set, so I didn't follow the sketch exactly. The size of the two items together made the proportions from the original sketch a little tough to match. I omitted the eyelets in the corners and the ribbon, but it still works well enough!
Ink: Onyx Black, Raspberry Fizz
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Raspberry Fizz, Black, White

Happy Friday! Here's the look back at the 19th sketch.
And here's my take on the sketch. I used this cute cow and sentiment from MFT's The Whole Herd
. I coloured it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out.
Here's the full card. The little hill was made by diecutting a long oval and then chopping off the sides- it's pretty straight-forward I think.
