MFT Sketch #276

Good morning!  This is actually my second post for today...if you're looking for today's Papertrey Ink group post, click here.  

Today is also sketch day for My Favorite Things, and I'm their guest for the month.  Today we're working with sketch #276...

276

And here's my take on it...

This card kind of evolved.  I had an idea to watercolor over the stitched lines in the Stitched Strips, but my first attempt was way too bold and just messy!  So I attempted it again, with much more watered-down color for a softer look.  But that first piece was just sitting there staring at me, so I decided to try to rescue it in the same way I rescue all of my watercolor misses...by diecutting them. So I used it to diecut the "friend", which I think turned out kind of cool.  I added some Bold Greenery diecuts, which I also watercolored lightly.  The "hello" is from the Fly-By Friends set.
