What is it about summer that seems to fly by?! Another week has come and gone already. I survived clothes shopping with the “back-to-school duo” and we are trying to fit in as much summer as we can over the next couple of weeks until school begins. With that, I am back today with a card for Freshly Made Sketches. The incredible Kim Singdahlsen has given us a unique and fantastic sketch that is sure to inspire you! I just love it!!
While I first thought about using some pretty papers for the panels, I realized that I liked the idea of washi tape instead. I found two from SU in my stash that have differing width stripes and I thought they would be great together. I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then added the washi tape. I stamped the gorgeous sentiment from Studio Katia in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. A few little sequins to finish. It kind of has a summer feel to it, don’t you think? Fun, bright and a little bit of whimsy.
I hope you will have as much fun with this as I did. Make sure you check out the work from the whole design team…always a treat!! I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you my project for the joint collaboration between Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron. There is all kinds of fun happening at the NND blog so don’t miss out! Until then, have a great day!
Stamp: Mini Thank You (Studio Katia); Paper: Thick Whisper White (SU), Basic Black (SU); Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Picked Raspberry Distress Ink; Accessories: Washi Tape (SU), Metallic Sequins (SU), Heat Tool, Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (SU), Misti
I love the black and white with that pop of vibrant pink. A fun card, Jennifer!
That big splash of raspberry is fabulous with the black! Love this!
Hi Jennifer ~ I’ve always been a fan of black and white with a splash of color and you’ve totally aced this! Thanks so much for sharing!
What a fun and creative use of the sketch – I LOVE the washi!! I especially the two different diagonals and it looks fabulous on the raspberry!!
The pop of pink and striped washi are such a cool look! Fabulous card!
What a gorgeous card Jen! I love that big pink splotch and the washi tape!!! Black and pink are one of my favourite combinations and this just looks amazing!!!
This definitely has a summer vibe to it. The watercolor splash kind of reminds me of a kool-aid stain! Or a blueberry pie stain! (Both of those remind me of summer)! And the washi tape was a great idea. I love the differing widths of the stripes.
Love this card so much, Jen! The washi tapes and the watercolor background look fantastic together!
