September 1st Stuck sketch

Hi there & thanks for stopping by.....
Stuck sketches has a new owner, her name is Laura & to find out more about her you can stop by HERE
We weren't able to get the sketch in time so for this 1 time we will be linking our Creative team layouts via the linky tool!!
1st September sketch! 

Really liked the looked of this sketch & pretty much stuck with it....
Arrrrrr! water paints.... I have found my newest addition... lol!
purchased my first lot of Twinkling H2Os Watercolors (starter pack) from Scrapfriends... & fell in love!!
Then just had to purchase more...hehehe  This time got them from Paper Stories & glad I did  have to admit purchasing them singly was a better way to go, I found the quality better ... but hey that's just my thoughts...
I even added the watercolors to these Twiddletbitz - Tweeny Bitz Cogs....

With this Twiddleybitz - Steam Punk Small Butterfly I've heat embossed with the American Craft Zing - Red Opaque finish, then dabbed lightly with gesso just to tame it down a little...
So for this sketch to be sure to check out the other CT layouts VIA the linky tool!
Till next time HAPPY scrapping ladies....
