Callas Congrats — FMS248

It’s time for another new sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches site!  And this week, the ever clever and terrifically talented Linda Callahan is our hostess.  And she has an original and clean sketch for us, which leaves so many opportunities for interpretation:

I needed to make a wedding card and decided that I could substitute flowers for the feathers in the sketch.  As I was looking through my floral sets, I saw the calla lilies in the Remarkable You set.  Calla lilies always make me think of weddings.  When it came time to color the image, I decided to Google pictures of them, because I always think of Calla lilies as being white, and I wanted to see if they come in other colors.  And they do!  Lots of other colors!

pink callasI decided to color mine with Watermelon Wonder ink using an aquapainter.  The dsp from the Pop of Pink dsp pack and a strip of Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon were used as accents.  The sentiment comes from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

pink callas close upI added a very light wash of Soft Sky ink around the blooms, which is so light, you can hardly see it in the photo.

We hope you’ll join us and play along this week!  Make your own card using the sketch and post it in the gallery.  We love seeing what you create.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team made for your viewing pleasure.  You’re sure to be inspired and wowed!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh my gosh, this is so gorgeous, Amy! The perfectly colored flowers, the perfectly chosen pieces of DSP and a nice die cut sentiment. It just doesn’t get better than this.
