No photo description available.

This is a glorious sketch!  I usually like to put quite a few photos on my pages - I always have heaps to use!!  - so this was a bit of a challenge to choose one photo only!!

My colours for this page are Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Seaside Spray.  

I've featured the amazing Painted Poppies stamp set with the gorgeous coordinating Painted Labels dies.  

The subtle background stamping was also created by inking the Coastal Weave embossing folder and randomly stamping all over the background of the page. 

The flowers were coloured using the Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends.  I stamped them using Night of Navy ink first and then coloured using both the light and dark Stampin' Blends.  

The leaves were stamped and coloured using the Crumb Cake ink and Stampin' Blends, and then all were cut using the Painted Label dies.  

I hope you've been inspired to give this great sketch a go!!  It was really fun to create this page!!
