Another super fun sketch is up this week at Freshly Made Sketches. This week, the super talented Kim Singdahlsen is our hostess and her sketch is really unique. It is always fun to see what the team comes up with and this one really got me to thinking.
I love when a sketch inspires me to go look hard at my stamps to see what jump out and this Stampin’ Up set called Work of Art practically leapt off the shelf. The watercolor styled swoosh is tailor made for the sketch. All I had to do was choose the ink colors. I went for this happy spring trio of Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo because they seem to be my go-to palette these days. Seasonal stamper’s disorder….choosing the colors of the season….although it seems that I have been stamping in spring for the entire winter too, haha! This sentiment is in my personal sentiment hall of fame (I may be guilty of sentiment
hoarding collecting). The perfect message and one that many need to hear. I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and then cut it out using the Stitched Shapes circle from SU. The whole panel was cut using Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp and put on a base of Thick Whisper White. I added some enamel dots because they, too, were calling out to join the fun.
I hope that you have a good time with this sketch. I anticipate a gallery full of creative work. The Design Team will start you off right so make sure you go take a look at their amazing cards. I’ll be back on Friday with this month’s Fancy Friday hop. Hint…their just may be a sketch!! Yippee!
