FMS346 by Jen Timko | Posie Fill In Stamp Set and Dies by Concord and 9th, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide InkI hope your week has been great so far.  Here today with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  We have a wonderful challenge this week from sketch hostess Linda Callahan.  Just like with every card Linda makes, this sketch lends itself to fun and whimsy…and lots of creativity.

As soon as I saw the circles, I thought about flowers and I thought these from the Posie Fill In Set were perfect for the job.  I love how they layer (even without their cool background that comes with the set).  I stamped them in Altenew Ink and chose the Coral Berry and Forest Glades.  I find it is easiest to stamp the outlines first and then the inside solid image.  They line up really easily.  For the flowers, I added the centers after the other layers.  I used my Misti to make short work of all the stamping too.  After pondering just using a plain white base, I thought it might be fun to create a more interesting background.  I pulled out my Distress Oxide Ink in Peacock Feathers.  I inked up a large clear block and spritzed it with water then used that to add the ink to Watercolor Paper.  I let the first layer dry a bit and then stamped a little extra ink down to add the splatters and details.  Conveniently, there was a bit of a white area left on the side with matches up with the sketch so I chose not to add another layer.  The sentiment comes from the same set as the flowers.

Flying tons this week.  The busy season is really upon us airline people!  Have a great rest of your week and I’ll see you again soon!  Thanks for stopping in.
