Freshly Made Sketches #28

I know I am completely biased but I just love the sketches from Freshly Made Sketches  every single week.  This week Lesley Croghan of Always Playing with Paper has brought us another great one.

I started in a whole different direction on this one using a watercolored panel and some masculine papers.  But you know what…the Bright Blossoms and Summer Smooches just kept calling out to me.  Sometimes you just have to listen!  I have just fallen in love with these little flowers.  I love tulips anyways and the fun little prints on these stamps add so much.  As soon as I saw the little rectangles on this sketch, I knew that it would involve little bows of some sort (what a surprise!).  I used the fork bow method using this tutorial and the awesome Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon.  Because of the weight of the ribbon, I used Sticky Strip instead of Mini Glue Dots to hold them onto the card.  With the texture coming from the bows I realized that the stamped panel need some dimension.  I stamped a couple more flowers and the vase and the fussy cut them.  To add that little extra finish to those, I ran a Stampin’ Write Marker around the edges of the cut out pieces (I find doing this from behind reduces the risk to your cut pieces in case you slip).  That lovely sentiment from Precious Butterflies came out again.  I just love the happy colors from the Summer Smooches DSP and this print is particularly great!  The stamp and the DSP will be available in April so just a couple more days!!

The design team has some fabulous takes on the sketch and I know you will love using it.  Can’t wait to see what you dream up!

I’m off to the Cherry Blossom Festival today (even though they are mostly gone) and some fun with my boys.  I hope your day is fantastic.  See you again soon!!

This is adorable!! Love those tiny little bows for the rectangle element. Great colors and great tip on outlining a cut piece from behind. I never even thought of running a marker around it at all. Of course, I almost never do fussy cutting. Just not very good at it.
