Hello & Happy Monday!

It's Poppy Sketches day on my blog!!  This is the final challenge for this term.   Where has the time gone?

Okay, let's get to the challenge, shall we?

Our Super Sponsor is

I'm a super BIG Fan of Jane's's how I was inspired:

paper:  basic grey kioshi/porcelain  stamps:  jane's doodles tearrific/life is good  ink:  hero arts hues  other:  lawn fawn journal die, freckled fawn arrow, folkart enamel gold paint, glossy accents, wink of luna, clothespin, confetti cuts by reverse confetti, dcwv cork

I rotated the sketch!

I tend to always fall back on my older Basic Grey paper pads when it comes to color challenges.  There is always something that fits perfectly.

The violet panel is from the Kioshi collection and the seashell pink is from Porcelain.

Can you tell that I brushed wink of luna on the clothespin?

The glittery gold is from the Freckled Fawn arrow.

The hearts are a mixture of gold enamel acrylic paint and glossy accents.

I managed to use 2 Jane's Doodles sets:

 I can't wait to see how the challenge inspires you!
