Freshly Made Sketches #365

A quick post today with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches.  The lovely Jennifer Brum is our sketch hostess and I love her sketch this week.  Well, in truth, I loved her original version….and I also love the flipped version that I had in my head (without going back to the team page to confirm the sketch).  Ah well, that is how it goes some weeks.  So imagine, if you will, that my layers are properly aligned.  Jen, sorry!!

I used the O Christmas Tree stamp set by Concord and 9th.  This is a go-to set for me and has been for a while.  Love the sentiments but these trees seemed to be perfect with all the prints.  I stamped them with Momento Tuxedo Black and added a little bit of Copic coloring to add a pop.  It still needed something so I colored some pearls to match.  The printed papers are from Stampin’ Up (Festive Farmhouse – Holiday Catty).

I hope you enjoy this sweet sketch.  I love all the possibilities!  I’ll be back later this week and I’ll look forward to seeing you then.  Hope you have a great week!

FMS301 by Jen Timko | Poinsettia Stamp by Simon Says Stamp, O Christmas Tree Stamp by Concord and 9th, Copic ColoringThis is my first post for today (my second, for the August release from NND will be up shortly following).  After an amazing week of inspiration and celebration from Freshly Made Sketches, we are on our way to the next 300 sketches this week.  The sketch hostess is our lovely friend Jen Brum and she has a unique angled sketch for us this week.  I’m in love!!

I chose to make another Christmas card since I’m starting to get the holiday card making buzz.  What better image than this beautiful flower from the Poinsettia stamp by Simon Says Stamp?  I’m taking another Copic coloring class this Friday (YAY!!!) and I thought I should probably put in a little practice before going.  So out came my reds and off to coloring I went.  I added in some leaves from the set for another pop of color and then made the rest using Vanilla and Black. Yes, Vanilla.  Because Stampin’ Up has a new Thick Vanilla card stock that is amazing!!!!  And it works beautifully for Copic coloring!!  I chose this sentiment from Concord and 9th since I thought it was a nice fit on the angle and then added some sequins in black.  This patterned paper is retired from Stampin’ Up (I have huge stash of black and vanilla papers that I think will finally get the love they deserve!).

I hope you have a great time with this sketch!  The team has provided their always spectacular inspiration so check out their work!  Thanks so much for stopping in.  So glad to see you!
