My second post of the day and a quick interruption of the SugarPea Designs Sweet Peeks. I am so happy to show you the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. The amazing Cécile is our designer this week and she has brought her flair to the sketch.
This weekend I got the chance to participate in a crafty retreat and it allowed me to play with some new to me products. For today’s card, I am using Taylored Expressions items and they are gorgeous to use. It started with the Sketchbook Florals stamp set and dies. This was designed by the talented Lori Craig and it is HER set I used. Lucky me!! I also tried out Karin Markers on this and suffice it to say that I’m a believer. Some will arrive here shortly. I stamped the flower in Versafine Clair ink and then colored with the markers. The way the ink moved with water is really fun.
Once the flower was dry, I cut it out with a coordinating die and got to work on the sketch. The little squares are the insets from the Mini Slim Square Window Cutting Plate and I love how their shape added just a bit of embellishment. For the perfect splatters, I used the Splatter Background stamp. Love the detail without the risk of a messy splatter.
I hope you enjoy this card and our sketch this week. Come over to join us for the fun! See you again tomorrow with more from SugarPea Designs.
I love this so much!
This is simply elegant! You had a very productive retreat!
The elegant, graceful flower is just perfect with a touch of color and the shaped squares had me checking what dies you used! Love it!!
This is STUNNING!! I love the soft color of the flower and all that white space. Your use of the edged squares is fabulous!
Gorgeous coloring! Maybe I need to try those markers–haha! Love the fun squares–just the right touch!
