SIP109 Company Store Inspired

Hi everyone!  It's Tuesday, and that means another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  Lisa has a nice easy sketch for us this week:

As I was looking through my Southern Living while on vacation, this ad for The Company Store caught my eye!  I just loved the colors and those pretty florals:

So I thought about how I could recreate it....I chose Crushed Curry for my Blooms and Wishes flowers, stamping them on a piece of Shimmery cardstock.  I then pencilled in some stems and leaves and loosely watercolored around everything with Smoky Slate ink.  Finally, I took a Basic Gray marker and outlined the images, then added some marshmallow sequins and a sentiment from Better Together.  Since the bedding is gray and white striped, I added some DSP from last year's Foxy Friends series for a mat.  

Here's some closeups of the florals....definitely a different look than my normal style, but I like the loose flowing look!

This sketch is an open book for any style, theme or occasion!  I hope you'll play with us at Stamp Ink Paper this week!

Another favorite vacation cute!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
