Happy middle of the week to you!! I hope you are having a great one so far. Today’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch is one that is sure to inspire. The lovely Amy O’Neill has given us one that can be used in so many ways! Love it!
When I saw the oval in the sketch, my brain immediately went to this sentiment from WPlus9. I love it as a focal point and it gets to be the star of the show. I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed with Wow Bright White Embossing Powder. The coordinating dies make quick work of cutting it out. The little flower and foliage images are super fun to use as accents. I stamped them in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and the colored using Chameleon Pens. I thought the black sentiment would be great against a wood grain background so I turned to this Wood Textures DSP by Stampin’ Up. I cut it using the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Dies. Finally I added some Basic Pearls to the flower centers after coloring them with a Sharpie marker.
I hope you have a great time with the sketch this week. I’m working hard to finish up my holiday cards. Christmas card-a-palooza, if you will. I’ll share some of those in the next few weeks. Thank you so much for dropping in today. See you again soon!
