Today is sketch 101 over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. I know I love the sketches & I bet you will too.
As you can see I have been playing with Botanical Odyssey again. This time I wanted to use up some scraps that I had left over from the LO I did. I stamped this gorgeous Penny Black flower onto the pp as I was going to paper piece it. But then decided I would colour the stems in (didn't feel like trying to fussy cut around them). After I did that I then decided to colour the rest of the flower in as well. I really like how this turned out. If you look closely you can see some of the pattern coming through the colouring. I think it adds something wonderful to the flower. I also coloured the ribbon (originally white) & the gems (a cream) to match the colours I used, with Copics. I'm thinking that when I finally run out of pearls & gems I will only buy white/clear ones so then I can colour them exactly how I want them. Saves having loads of different colours that I'd maybe use once or twice.
I do hope that you can join us this week. It's loads of fun. Happy crafting my friends & have a great day
