So on Saturday, I had the most lovely invitation to go to an event that was a “bring your own craft” kind of thing. There were Stampin’ Up demos and customers along with some other company reps and friends. These ladies get together each month to just make things all day. I know what you are thinking and you are right! It was awesome! I could only go for a few hours but it is amazing how much that time is good for the soul. Per my usual, I accomplished very little because I’m never sure what to pack (and I’m the slowest stamper). But I did bring along this flower to color and some things that I might be able to use for this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I have to say that I just love the creative possibilities that this week’s hostess, the lovely Jennifer Brum, has given us!
I only used two colors from my Zig Clean Color Pack (a bright pink and a yellow) to color this flower but I love how they work together and blend to create the orange. With the strength of the flowers colors, I opted to use a neutral base so I chose Smoky Slate. The sentiment is from the same Altenew set as the flower (Beautiful Day) and I stamped it in Versafine ink and the layered the white with some Melon Mambo. I added some Daffodil ribbon that I have
hoarded in my stash since it is so pretty with the flower. I think I’ll be adding this sketch to my go-to group. I see lots of ways to use it!
And yes, the team has definitely come up with some of them. As always, they are amazing! Well, lots of posts this week and I’m back to the stamp room to get ready for some more coming up soon. Until then, I hope you have a great day! As for the monthly gathering…I can’t wait to go back and this time actually finish some projects! See you soon!
