Quick post today. I just got back from a long day of sledding. Taking advantage of the snow while we have it! The neighborhood sports complex has some fabulous hills that are simply crazy for the boys! Good stuff. Speaking of good stuff, Freshly Made Sketches has an awesome one for you this week courtesy of the wonderful Karren Johnson. I just love it.
Had no stamping time this week due to the snow madness here. I was able to put this together quickly yesterday. I tried a technique I had seen on a card made by Tasnim over at Altenew to create the flower. Her’s, admittedly, is far more spectacular but I think this creates a nice effect. I simply used Distress Ink in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Hickory Smoke on wet watercolor paper and then added more water with my Zig Water Pen to move ink a little more. The sentiment comes from Another Thank You stamped in Basic Gray ink (SU). Despite using my Misti to overstamp multiple times, the sentiment just would not stamp completely clean. Ah well….that is how it goes sometimes. I cut the panel out with my Stitched Rectangles Die (SSS) and put the image panel on a Smoky Slate base.
Hope you have a fun time with the sketch this week! So much room for fun and interpretation!
