Beate's Sketch

I finally had a chance to do one of Beate's weekend sketch challenges. I actually did this on Sunday night even though I'm uploading it on Monday night. Beate extended this weekends to Tuesday am.

My card is a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card. I think most people did a square card for this one but I stuck to the standard. The fairy stamps are from Close to My Heart and I'm not even sure if they are current or not anymore. I really like how this one turned out. The inspirations started with using the 6x6 Stella Ruby paper and then I though of fairies and flowers and sure enough I have a flower fairy set. I didn't photograph these until tonight so I had to use my ott lite rather than natural light so the watercoloring on the fairy didn't come out that well.



Supplies
Stamps: Fairy - Flower Fairies (CTMH), Sentiment - Fairy Dust (CTMH), Floral background (SU)
Paper: Barquoe Burgandy (SU - retired color - IMO, a nicer burgandy than bravo), So saffron, 6x6 Basic Grey Stella Ruby, Very Vanilla
Ink: waterproof black, Markers for watercoloring (barquoe burgandy, so saffron, certainly celery, blush blossom, cameo coral)
Accessories: Marvy giga scalloped circle and mega circle, pink eyelets set with cropdile, yellow stickles in the center of pink eyelets
