Sketch Saturday week #32

This week's Sketch Saturday challenge is a brilliant sketch by Emma. I love it - just my 'cup of tea' and will certainly be using it again. I used HOTP papers and coloured the image with watercolours. Has anyone noticed, or is it just me - most images don't really lend themselves to round or square shapes - they are more fitting for oblongs. I used SU flowers and leaves cut with the Leone Em punch. I left the inside fairly simple for this card.



Materials
Papers - Hot of the Press - Retro
Cuttlebug with round Nestabilities
Stamping Up - flowers
Leone Em Ash leaf punch
Stamp - House Mouse - Throwing Daisy Petals
Rowney - watercolours

oh this is gorgeous Heather. Yep I noticed the rectangle symdrome too. I also noticed that most stamps lend themselves to the shape and size you haven't got in nesties.
