Another amazing sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week. A clean classic from our classically fabulous Jen Brum! Lots of room for scene building, patterned papers or die cuts.

I wanted to play around with a watercolor look using solid image stamps and love how this turned out. The stamp set is a retired one from Honey Bee Stamps (Bold Botanicals) but you may have similar versions in your stash. Using Distress Ink, I inked up the stamp, spritzed with water and then stamped. On some of the images, I just stamped again for that faded look. I’ll admit that this is a bit addictive and fun to experiment with!

Once I was done inking, I distressed the edges of the paper (watercolor paper) and then inked more Distress Ink onto the edges and created more of an aged look. I splattered with some of the Weathered Wood and then set everything aside to dry. I tied up some linen thread with a button and added a sentiment with double banners. A friend has asked me to create a card for his wife who is pregnant with twins and I hope this will be a contender for him to choose from. I chose a basic sentiment with that in mind. You can only see it a little but I stamped some of the flowers on the corner of the envelope and finished an inside panel with a few more flowers in a bottom corner.

I hope you like this one. I’d love to hear what you think so I know if this feels special enough for my friend. Thanks so much for stopping in. See you soon!
