So how is your spring going so far? I’m convinced that Virginia really hasn’t gotten the memo yet (although I did see some gorgeous hyacinths today so there is hope!). Clearly I had no other choice but to create a little spring in the craft room instead! And conveniently enough, our Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week leaves loads of room for flowers….even a Mondo flower! Big thanks to design team member Lee Ann Barrett for a fabulous sketch with room for images, techniques or designer paper prints.
I looked at all my Mondo flowers by Ellen Hutson but thought the new Mondo Gerbera Daisy was the way to go for spring. I’m not sure there is an actual Gerbera in this color combo but I’d love to have it in my garden if it exists! I used Copics to shade just the base of the petals and the center of the flower leaving the white space at the edges. I think having all the white makes the color pop even more. The sentiment is from the same set and I love this calligraphy look!
This is Lee Ann’s first sketch with FMS so I hope you show her some extra love and even play along. Designing sketches can be intimidating and her classic look will surely be a hit! Thanks so much for stopping in today. See you soon!
Fresh and clean, and oh so pretty!
Oh that touch of yellow is perfect! CAS and delightful! Such a pretty card!
This is such a fabulous card Jen! I just love that flower! Your colouring looks amazing! Spring hasn’t really arrived here yet either. I’m really looking forward to the warmer weather!
That big daisy is gorgeous and the touch of color you’ve added is perfect!
I always get impatient at this time of year because I want spring to start immediately — and it never does. So creating a bit of spring in the craft room is just the thing! I love this mondo flower with its touches of yellow. Beautiful!
