Cute Card Thursday #175 - Sketch

Happy Thursday!

This week at Cute Card Thursday, we have a terrific sketch for you. 

...and here is my card...

Stamps: Sitting Angel Tilda, Tim Holtz Visual Artistry
Paper: Signature Christmas (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, lace, MS Branch Punch. 

It is really fun to watercolor. You just never quite know what you are gonna get. I love how you can blend colors and really get into the details. 

The challenge this week at Make it Colourful is to color your embellishments. I did that with my airbrush, coloring my roses with a variety of Copics colors. 

I also colored the metallic frame around my sentiment with alcohol ink. It started as a silver frame, and is now cappuccino. 

In addition, I took this white lace and added just a hint of Antique Lace Distress Ink to age it a bit.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous weekend!
