The art in this beautiful stamp set is unique and really pretty but I also fell in love with the sentiments. I created this card to show one of them off and to also highlight that the dies are able to multitask. On a piece of watercolor paper (Tim Holtz Distress), I sponged on some different Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch and Squeezed Lemonade then splattered on a bit of water. Using the dies, I cut out the flowers big and small. Additionally I created a frame with the ovals from my Stitched Shapes dies. I stamped the sentiment in Picked Raspberry onto a white base (using the Misti helps since I needed to stamp a few times given the nature of Distress Ink). All I had to do was group my flowers and add some Basic Pearls.
I love when die sets lend themselves to quick cards and I think these flowers are ones I’ll return to again and again (and of course, all the other adorable shapes in the set!). Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Thanks so much for stopping in. See you soon!
So is it acting like spring where you are? Well, it certainly has been in Virginia and that inspired my card for today. I’m the sketch hostess over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I hope you will love the sketch I created for you. It is also the beginning of Kathy Racoosin‘s 30 Day Coloring Challenge (The Daily Marker 30 Day) which is a month of amazing inspiration that fills IG feeds with lovely art. It reminds us, as crafters, to take a little time every day just to make a little something that is pretty.
I kept my coloring pretty simple for today and used this gorgeous flower from Mama Elephant. Inspired by some of the cherry blossoms that are sure to be popping out any time here in my yard, I chose a soft pink for the flowers. The sentiment comes from the set too and I think it is a favorite of mine. The image and sentiments were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and the flower was coloring using Tim Holtz Distess Inks.
I hope you will join us with this sketch. I tried to make one that is open to techniques, large images or even pretty DSP. The team, of course, used all of these ideas and I’m sure you will come up with even more! Thanks for stopping in today. Remember….YOU make the world a better place! You certainly make mine better! Have a great day.
