Here we are at Wednesday again, and that means it’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. This week, the incredibly talented Linda Callahan has a creative sketch for us:
I have to admit that this one threw me for a loop for a little while, but then I decided to just pick an image and use it three times in a collage style. Since I’m still (im)patiently waiting on Fall to arrive here, I decided to use the cute acorn from Cheer All Year. I really do love this set! There are lots of cute images, and it is so easy to work with them.
I started with a piece of dsp from the Typeset Specialty dsp. I took a watercolor brush and watercolored on the dsp using some Bermuda Bay ink. When that dried, I splattered on some undiluted Bermuda Bay ink with my paintbrush.
I stamped the acorns twice. Once with Early Espresso ink on Early Espresso card stock, and once with Cajun Craze ink, using the rock-and-roll technique with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock.
We hope you’ll join us and make your own card with the sketch. We love seeing how you interpret it and browsing the gallery. You can hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see all of the fabulous things the design team did with it for some inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

I love EVERYTHING about this card, Amy. The watercolored grid paper, those adorable acorns, the sentiment embellished with a button and bow, the colors… did I leave anything out? If I did, I love that, too!
