Sweet Sunday: #286

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #286 rolls out today!  🙂

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week: I sort of twisted up the elements a week bit, but they are there! 🙂

hawkins_jill_I don't know_00_wmThis card was one of those accidents. I was watercoloring this Concentric Circle stencil for a different idea and then, I lifted it off and thought: Hmmmmmmm? So I stamped it :). I couldn’t decide if I should add more to it or not? I feel if that debate goes on for several minutes, the answer is: No. Stop. LOL. 🙂 hawkins_jill_I don't know_wm

I wanted the sentiment to bleed out a bit…so I stamped with Grout Gray Hybrid a couple of times, then I stamped it with the Steel Blue dye ink, giving it this slight bleed.

Other than that, I kept it super simple in the end. The die cut panel and matte helps give it a finished look.

My card was made with supplies from My Favorite Things:

hawkins_jill_dew_WMSoda POP! And DEW!? Dewey love? Yes we Dew! 🙂 haaaaa! Laina rocks great designs. I also completely enjoy this stencil and cover up. Ahhh September new releases! 🙂


I have a second card to share using this sketch. It is quite a loose take. I used the building as the “tag” and went from there. I usually look at a sketch to start and don’t look at it again. That’s how things get a little wacky, often. 🙂

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_wmI decided I had *medium* control issues after making this. The watercolors want to flow, not be controlled. 😉

hawkins_jill_you're sweet friend_00_wmSuch a fun set nonetheless. And I’ll keep practicing. 🙂
