It’s time for another sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week Jen Mitchell is our hostess. She is so talented at making clean cards with a little grunge and a lot of style. I love the sketch she has for us this week:
I was a little creative with my use of the sketch this time. I’m not sure what happened. One thing kept leading to another, and before I knew it I was more off course than I intended. But hopefully, you can see the sketch when you look at my card (just squinch up your eyes a little if you don’t — ha!).
I started by inking up my apple stamp from Apple of My Eye with Hello Honey ink. I then took a sponge dauber and sponged on some Cherry Cobbler ink around the edges. The sentiment was stamped on top with Basic Black ink. I cut it out with my paper snips when finished.
I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to stamp the “You are the” pieces. The dsp is from the Have a Cuppa dsp stack.
We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch. You can jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for a big dose of inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
