FMS238 Remarkable You

I've had the Remarkable You stamp set for quite a while now, but haven't made anything with it.  Calla Lilies are one of my favorite flowers, I love their simple elegance.  Wanted to challenge myself to use the set for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
This sketch has multiple layers of shapes.  I chose to go a little more subtle and layer my ink colors:

I embossed the Calla Lilies with white ep on the Sweet Sugarplum panel.  I watercolored the flowers using Sweet Sugarplum, a touch of Perfect Plum, Emerald Envy and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners in Basic Black ink.

Always hard to capture the sparklyness of a card, but I tried to zoom in a little bit.  I mixed in some drops of Wink of Stella to my Daffodil Delight ink.
I outlined the flowers and filled in the stamen with the sparkly ink.  Love that you can make any ink color sparkly with just a few drops of the Wink of Stella clear!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
