I’ve been catching up after all the posts last week. Hope you have been having a nice few days! I have been working…I consider it my quest to fly around the country looking for spring. I have found a few glimpses. I don’t mean to seem obsessed but seriously, it is time for spring to arrive and stay! We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the lovely Amy O’Neill. I love all the options!
I started with this gorgeous sentiment pairing from the Hello Lovely stamp set (Concord and 9th). I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I chose the little cherry blossom style flowers from the Beautiful Branches stamp set (Concord and 9th) and stamped them using Altenew’s Coral Berry Ink. Then I heat embossed with clear powder. I added the stamens of the flowers in black in and heat embossed with clear again. The flowers are a bit bolder than what I had in mind to start (my tree had pretty pale pink flowers) but I was happy with the colors once I was done. I found some retired card stock to match the ink for the sketch panel behind the images.
I’m also entering this in the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge. So glad you stopped in today. The team at FMS has created such fun interpretations of the sketch. Also, make sure you say a special thank you to Tracey McNeely for being an awesome guest!
