Today was sketch challenge day. I really loved this sketch. When walking my dogs this morning, it was kind of dark and rainy. I wanted to see if I could capture some of that emotion. I used a scalloped circle to help me with my cloudy sky. All of the blue in this card is not quite navy, by SU. I like how my rainy sky turned out.
I recently purchased this PSX stamp and even got it on sale. I think PSX stamps are so wonderful. They have lots of flowers and botanicals, unfortunately they are now out of business. You can find some on ebay. Anyway, I did my first card with this stamp in pinks, and wanted to try it in blues. I watercolored the image and paired it with some green dp. Fun!

I posted this card on SCS and said that I did this just for me. I love doing the challenges, but sometimes it's fun to just do what we want to do. Of course, I think the challenges help to grow us and show us how to do things we wouldn't otherwise think of doing. I love watercoloring, and I love this image, so it just made sense that I paint this today.
