Tuesday Morning Sketches #159

Today's post will be short and sweet, I put on a new audiobook and settled into my craft space for a little creative time last evening.

I struggled a little with this sketch, I was not sure what elements to use where. I finally worked around this pretty image from the Serene Silhouette Stampin' Up! set. I wanted to see how my watercolour pearlescents would work on a light background.

I added lots of texture to the backgound and the small brown strip. I heat embossed the sentiment then added small punched flower pieces in parts of the white space. I dug deep into my supplies for these flowers and added a little twine and some pearls.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Pink Paisle, Inspired by Stamping-The Sky's the Limit, Stampin' Up Serene Silhouette, Spellbinders Die Cuts, Prima Flowers, twine and pearls.
