The sketch was a very simple one to-day so I tried to keep my design very simple too and avoid all the flowers, bows and embellishments that usually end up on my creations! The main image from Hampton Arts was white embossed on Arches watercolour paper then I dropped eggplant and artichoke randomly on a wet background. The gingham squares were from my scrap pile and I used some butcher twine that I had made using crochet cotton and a sharpie. The background folder is from Darice.

Sue, I LOVE your technique to color this image....stunning! TFS how you did it. The overall embossing of the bg panels really helps to give a unified look....and turning the sketch 90 deg. worked perfectly.
