Freshly Made Sketches #424

Freshly Made Sketches #424 published on 5 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #424

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Virginia winter has kind of been a bust. In fact, I just saw some daffodils actually blooming. At the end of February. So, in that effort of accepting that we will have no real snow, I’m just moving on to stamping spring. Thankfully, the wonderful Jen Brum designed a great sketch for us at Freshly Made Sketches to enable me.

I told you recently that I had just put in my order from The Greetery and guess what? It arrived!! I love the Let’s Have a Word – Beautiful die set for this sketch. And the little flower from Summer Sketches seemed perfect yet again. I started with a Strathmore Watercolor Card and brushed on Altenew inks from the same color family. The pretty yellow oranges seemed right for my spring mood. After brushing them on, I spritzed with a bit of water and got this pretty effect. I thought the words in black were a nice contrast. I stamped the little flower using the lightest (Sunday) and third (Snapdragon) colors in the set to coordinate. The little banner is also from The Greetery and comes from the Sentiment Suite Basic die set. I found some sunny sequins in my stash to match and done!

I hope you will join us this week for our challenge. As always, make sure you check out all the inspiration from the design team! Back tomorrow with a fun card (yes, created at Stamping Away). See you then!

Oh wow! This is such a gorgeous card Jen! I just love that background with the bold, black sentiment! The flowers are so sweet as well! Our winter has been odd too. Hardly any snow and warm for us. Except for today…when we’re in the middle of a snow storm. Thankfully it’s supposed to melt in a few days!
