It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches! And this week our talented friend from Australia, Narelle Farrugia, is our hostess. Check out the great sketch she has for us:
I recently acquired a new set that I was eager to ink up and color. It’s the Basket of Wishes set in the Holiday Catalog. It’s a fun set because there are three different baskets and four different arrangements that you can place in the baskets. If I could remember anything from my college statistics class, I could tell you just how many different baskets you could make. It’s a lot!
I totally stayed true to the sketch this week! Shocking! I stamped the image with Basic Black Archival ink onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I colored it with a blender pen and my ink pads — Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry, and a little Smoky Slate for outline shadowing. This one is easy to color and fun!
I used some of the Fancy Frost Specialty dsp, which has beautifully textured designs and has some patterns that don’t have to be used just for Christmas-themed cards. I very lightly sponged some Crumb Cake ink onto the raised dots to add a tiny bit of contrast.
A strip of Petals & Paisleys Specialty dsp and a strip of a Copper Foil Sheet were used as well. The sentiment is from a stamp in the Paisleys & Posies set.
We hope you’ll join us and play along with us this week! We love to see what you create! Meanwhile, be sure to jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
