This is my first post of the day. I’ll be up a bit later with a card for the Newton’s Nook Designs blog and in support of Layton’s Legacy.
I do love my Wednesdays because it is Freshly Made Sketches day! And today we have a fabulous sketch by Jen Mitchell. Jen creates the most remarkable cards and also happens to be just an amazing person. No surprise that she has created a fun sketch for the week!
As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew that I was going to use my brand new Monogram J stamp from Concord and 9th. When faced with a whole alphabet of choices, I chose the J and the T. Hmmm….. I inked the J up with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and then filled in the flowers and leaves with Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Peeled Paint Oxide Inks. I cut out the panel with the coordinating dies and then cut another panel of the same size using some Color Theory paper (SU). I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and used the banner die from the die set to cut it out. I can’t wait to play with more color varieties and ink styles on this stamp!!
Well, since more is coming in just a bit, I’ll sign off for now. Make sure you go visit the FMS blog and I hope you will join us this week. See you soon!
