Wow, it is Wednesday already and I’m here with the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. The lovely Tui Nathan of Stampin-Time has brought us this fun layout. The hardest part of using it was narrowing down the choices. I may make a few more with this one since it is so versatile!
I turned it on its side to use one of my favorite watercoloring sets ever…Every Moment. This one is on Stampin’ Up’s retirement list but it isn’t too late. I can say with certainty that it will be in my collection for a long time to come! I stamped the flower and butterfly in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper, then colored in with Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. Blessedly, this wasn’t made for any specific reason. I had recently used a sympathy card from my box of cards and wanted to replace it. I find that when I need one, I either don’t have the time or the focus to create one. These are best made “just because” for me. I used some retired Elegant Soiree DSP from a couple of years ago. I thought the line art was a nice combination with the art of the stamp.
Well, you can see that I never got around to posting a card yesterday. Apologies! It seems that the end of the school year brings lots and lots to do and no time to do it. Today I’m off to a field trip but I have already scheduled the post for tomorrow.
Make sure you go see the design team’s variations on this sketch. So many beautiful cards! Hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by!
