I am so happy to be the sketch hostess this week over at Freshly Made Sketches! It always makes me a little nervous since we always want you to love our sketches and today I went with a bit of a classic look. I love a big oval as a place to show off images and dies. But I’m sure you will find ways to interpret this that I didn’t even consider. That always makes me happy!
I used this pretty little flower from Julie’s Roses by Winnie and Walter. I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. After coloring the flower and the leaves, I fussy cut them out. I thought this amazing Lattice Frame Cutting Die by Taylored Expressions was the perfect way to show off the flower. So much detail but not enough to distract from the focal image. Love it! The sentiment is also from Winnie and Walter in a set called Sketchy Thoughts. I used a base of Doll Pink by Simon Says Stamp to complete the look.
Now I get to share some fun news! For the month of May, my friend Jill Hawkins will be joining us as a Guest Designer at Freshly Made Sketches. If you don’t know Jill, you should! She has the BEST sense of humor and oh by the way makes insanely great cards! We are thrilled to have her joining our happy band for the month.
Well, I hope you like the sketch and that you will have a few minutes to play along. We are full up in soccer season here at my house (JV High School for the oldest, Middle School for the youngest and club ball all around). The good news….I get to see the boys doing what they love. The bad news, less stamping. It is a worthwhile tradeoff though. Hoping to hit the stamp room later today to make some stuff to share soon. Thanks for stopping in today!
