I love the new sketch that we have from Freshly Made Sketches this week!! The lovely Narelle has given us such a great one and I knew I had to use flowers…because, well, Narelle is the queen of gorgeous flower cards. This pretty stamp set seem tailor-made for the sketch so I just went with the easy choice.
Banner in Bloom has such wonderful images and this banner with the flowers is an easy go-to. I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The pretty pastels seemed just right for the image and I love how they looked agains the Fog Gray color from Simon Says Stamp. To add to the sketch elements (that were really already incorporated in the image), I thought it would be nice to add a bit of black metallic thread behind the banner. The card seemed a little too clean (even for me) so I pulled out an old favorite embossing folder called Softly Falling to add a little bit of texture. What a difference that makes!
And there you have it! Fun coloring and a sweet little card for my stash. I’m busy stamping this week for some upcoming projects. Can’t wait to share them all. Until next time, thanks so much for stopping in!
