Oh, look at the amazing sketch we have for you today over at Freshly Made Sketches! My friend Linda Callahan, queen of clever, is our hostess this week and her sketch will get you moving right to your craft room!
As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought shaker card. So that is just what I made! I did a quick watercolor using Tim Holtz Distress Inks on these fun flowers from the Lovely Blooms Stamp set (Newton’s Nook Designs) and cut them out with coordinating dies. I chose colors to match my awesome sequins from Studio Katia and to make my coordination easy. I cut a frame with Stitched Shapes Thinlits (SU). The sentiment from Happy Little Thoughts (NND) was stamped onto the window sheet (also cut with the square die) and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Kind of wish I had black powder for a sharper look but I think this works with the loose watercolor look from the flowers. I rooted around in my DSP stack until I found a print that worked in the background. I kind of love these stripes!
