Hello! Playing in this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

Peony stamp is from Ellen Hutson's Mondo Peony. I used white detail embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then used a variety of pink colors to water color it. Same with the leaves. All are fussy cut out. I switched up the bottom two layers on the sketch.

The back ground paper is repurposed or upcycled from a top I just bought from J. Jill. It was packaged in between the top and the plastic for shipping. Loved the texture of it and put it to use on this card.

ETA: I forgot to include this into the Hint of Pink challenge over at Simon Say Stamp.

Thanks for stopping in.

How recycling-re-purposing are you - and it makes a beautiful background for such a beautiful image. Love your water coloring.
