I selected the lovely farmer's wife from Oh Crop and decided to try and use the pretty colours from this week's ColourQ to direct my piecing choices. http://colourq.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/colourq-challenge-188.html For the layout I went with this week's Freshly Made Sketch http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/freshly-made-sketches-85-sketch-by.html
I picked some papers that matched 3 of the colours and then stamped my sentiment in the paler pink colour. I used a background from the same stamp set to add some interest behind the main focal element using the top line of it as my straight line on the sketch. I left that as an outline - can't decide if I like it or not really but hey ho.
