Beate's Weekend Sketch #67

Good Saturday Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous Friday. Mine was spectacular! My oh so sweet husband surprised me with a trip to Savannah and lunch at Paula Deen's restaurant "The Lady and Sons." It was so yummy! We both just had the buffet; but it was good ol' Southern cookin'. We also went shopping for a new diamond anniversary ring for me! I picked out the most gorgeous diamond wrap for my solitaire. We still have to get it sized, so I don't have it just yet. I will have to take a picture of it and show you.
We came home and then my mom offered to buy us dinner for our anniversary, so we all went to Applebee's. So I got out of cooking twice in one day!
I didn't have a chance to do any stamping yesterday, obviously! But I did get a chance to do Beate's weekend sketch this morning. I used Really Rust as my base. Then I took a piece of watercolored paper and used my stipple brush to stipple Sage Shadow, Really Rust, and Navy ink and then I took my aqua painters and dragged them across the paper, blending the colors. Then I took a stamp from "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" and stamped it in Sage Shadow ink across the watercolored background. I used that same background stamp on a piece of Sage Shadow card stock. The NQ Navy pattern paper is from the Hostess Packet of Print Patterns Paper. I used the Tulip stamp from the "Flower for All Seasons" set which I colored with watercolor pencils, inks and aqua painters. I punched out two scalloped circles and used them as backing for that image. I put a brad in each of the buttons and then added those to complete the card.
That's all for me for this weekend. I hope you enjoy the rest of yours and I will be back on Monday!
