FMS290 - Flower Hugs by Jen Timko | Mondo Hydrandgea Stamp and Dies by Ellen Hutson, Lovely Stamp by Ellen Hutson, Chameleon Color Tone Pencils, Chameleon Color Tone PensI have been waiting for today because I have something super awesome to share with you!!  Not only do we have a great sketch by the lovely Kim Singdahlsen at Freshly Made Sketches, I also finally get to share some information about a product review I did for Splitcoaststampers!

I have been using the amazing new pencils from Chameleon and I created this card by combining the Chameleon Color Tone Pens with the Color Tone Pencils.  Wow, they are great together!  I shared details and my thoughts on paper choices over at Splitcoaststampers so please check the entire review from the review team here:  CHAMELEON COLOR TONE PENCILS REVIEW

To help you understand a bit more of how the products work together, I made a quick video showing you how I did the coloring:

I made the flowers the star of the show but I could not resist adding a doily that seemed perfect for the sketch!  I used Night of Navy Baker’s Twine to coordinate with the blue in the flowers and thought this great sentiment from Ellen Hutson’s Lovely worked beautifully with the sketch.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some beautiful work to inspire you and the Splitcoaststampers Review Team has samples that show many facets of these new pencils.  I’ll be back tomorrow with another card I created for the review.  Until then, have a great day!

FMS282 by Jen Timko | Mondo Hydrangea and Lovely Stamp Sets by Ellen Hutson, Zig Clean Color, WatercolorQuick post today.  Sorry if you stopped in earlier and got a white screen or other messages.  Apparently a plugin update cause the whole site to have a fatal error.  Good times!  Now to happy things!

We have the most wonderful sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the lovely Cécile.  I just love the idea of the layered squares!  It didn’t take me long to decide on the smallest squares from the Stitched Shapes Thinlits but then what to add?  I was looking through my stamp sets and the most counterintuitive set jumped out at me.  Mondo Hydrangea by Ellen Hutson!  So yes, the mondo flower was not the right fit for the squares but the little blossoms were perfectly sized!  I stamped them in Versafine ink onto Fabriano watercolor paper and colored with my Zigs.  Simple coloring but oh so pretty!  I added on a little sentiment from another Ellen Hutson set called Lovely.  Am I allowed to say how happy I am with this card?  I was fighting with my mojo a bit this week and having this card come together quickly saved a bit of my sanity.

Ok…off to visit the amazing team.  Make sure you stop in to let us know what you think of the sketch and I hope you’ll join in with us.  I’ll be back at the beginning of next week with the April release week from Newton’s Nook Designs.  Until then, I hope you have a great week!  See you soon.


Stamp:  Mondo Hydrangea (Ellen Hutson), Lovely (Ellen Hutson) ; Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Zig Clean Color Markers; Paper:  Thick Whisper White; Accessories:  Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Thinlits (SU), Dimensionals
