Happy July to you!! I hope that you have had a great start to the month. You may have noticed I have been mostly absent over the last week or so. Well, I was! Because I was on vacation! YAY!!! My family and I went to the beach for a week and then added onto the vacation with a trip to downtown Washington DC for a baseball game and the big fireworks on the 4th. The weather was a bit soggy but the game played on and the family had a great time. Even the fireworks managed to go up despite the low ceilings. But now I’m home and getting everything back in order. So I’ll start by being the sketch hostess for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.
I continued to play with my new Colorbox inks, this time in the Spring color palette. I thought it would be fun to pull out the little Daisy stamp from Altenew and do a bit of masking to create this little trio of flowers. Pretty, aren’t they?! The layering of the colors comes from just stamping off the inks in various degrees to create the shades. Super simple way to make sure your colors coordinate perfectly! Speaking of coordinating….aren’t these sequins an awesome match?! I picked out two from Pretty Pink Posh and one from an old Paper Pumpkin. The sentiment is from the Skipping Stones Design set Healing Wings. I cut the stamped layer using my retired Ovals Dies (SU) and then attached it to a White Notecard from SU.
I hope that you enjoy this sketch! The team must have because their samples this week are incredible!! I look forward to seeing you in the gallery too! Now….back to laundry…. And maybe just a bit of stamping too, I hope. Until next time, I hope you have a great day!
