I am so happy to share the latest from Freshly Made Sketches today! I am the sketch hostess this week and I hope you will enjoy this one. As I pondered what to do, I thought about a “one layer” look for the sketch. This is what I came up with. In fairness, my final card isn’t really one layer but I hope that means there are lots of ways to create with it.
I scoured around my stamps to figure out what I wanted for the groupings and came across this pretty Posie Fill In from Concord and 9th. And then I realized that the coordinating dies were PERFECT for the sketch. The big sentiment in the middle is from that! So I stamped the flowers in shades of aqua (Mermaid and Peacock by Lawn Fawn) and then stamped the outlines in black. The flowers are easily cut out with the coordinating dies. I cut the sentiment from white card stock and then layered on the flowers alternating the heights with regular adhesive and foam tape. Then using my paper cutter, I trimmed off the edges of the flowers to make them flush. Using more foam tape, I popped the stamped image up on an aqua card base (Bermuda Bay by Stampin’ Up). I added the letter “middles” from the R and the D on more foam tape and that was it.
Something about these colors really made me happy when I was creating it. While I’m content with some winter weather that still may be due, the fresh spring look of this appealed to me. I hope that you will have some time to play along this week. The team has outdone themselves and I hope you enjoy their creations too. Thanks so much for stopping in today. I’ll be back to crafting tomorrow as the Picket Fence Studios team is preparing for the CHA (Creativation) release later this month. You will be blown away!! I’ll try to sneak in something just for fun to share sooner though. Until then, have a great rest of your week.
