I 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.
