I’m busy, busy showing you projects this week and I have been waiting to show you this one. I made this while I was at Stamping Away and just love it!! It seems perfect that the wonderful Kim Singdahlsen is the sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I love what she creates with Taylored Expressions products so it seems fitting that I was able to use some of those for her sketch.
I started with the Mandala Cutting Plate and what a wow it is! I cut it out of some Bristol Smooth paper so that I could watercolor it. I smooshed some Distress Ink onto a clear block and added some water, then used that to color the mandala. I saved the large cut out section on the right side so that I could color it too. So bold and super simple to do! Another of the TE design team members, Jen Shults, brought this die (and many of its friends) to Stamping Away and she also brought a ton of TE stamps. I was like a kid in a candy store!! Took me a while but I finally narrowed down to the perfect sentiment from the Free Spirit stamp set. I cut out a banner with the Double Ended Flag Stacklet and then stamped on the sentiment using my Misti.
This may be my favorite card that I have made in a while and I was clearly inspired by all the rainbows and creativity while I was at the Whatever Craft House! I hope you enjoy this sketch as well…so many beautiful projects from our design team!! Thanks so much for stopping in. I’ll see you soon!
