Card Sketch Monday - Featuring Falling Flowers

On Monday, I try post a sketch challenge to get the creative juices flowing.   This week I am posting a card I made for a Swap-Bot card sketch swap.  For this swap the host chose sketch #99 from the Freshly Made Sketches  (FMS) archives.   I love the FMS blog and I have made cards using their sketches several times.  This sketch was clean and simple just the way I like it.  I masked off an area, added color with the awesome Watercolor Pencils and did a little micro splattering with my Aqua Painter and Basic Black ink pad.  With my background ready I stamped and die cut a few flowers from the May Flowers Framelits and added some (sadly retired) Enamel Dots.  All done!!

Card Measurements:
 Daffodil Delight base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Watercolor layer 5 x 3 3/4
Daffodil Delight flower  2 x 2
Bermuda Bay Flower 2 x 2
Melon Mambo flower 2 x 2

TIP:   I find the best tool to use for masking off an area to color is adhesive notes.  I have tried painters tape, masking tape and Washi tape.  While the others work sometimes, they have a tendency to really stick to the paper and I have had a few (actually many) disappointing results (paper tears).  So I stick with adhesive notes and I stock up when school supplies go on sale or ask for them at Christmas (nice stocking stuffer).

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Tea and Stamps, today. I hope you enjoyed viewing my project featuring the fantastic Falling Flowers Stamps and May Flowers Thinlets.
