It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our ink-blending and coloring pro, Karren Johnson, is our hostess. Take a look at this fun sketch:
Since it is still hot as blazes here in Texas, I just can’t even look at my pretty Fall and Christmas stamps yet. When I saw the circles in this sketch, I thought of those sweet little birds in the Bird Ballad Suite. I got out my paper snips and cut some of them out.
I started out by sponging some Pool Party ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then cut a strip of the pretty pink polka dot paper from the same dsp pack and mounted it on another piece of whisper white card stock that I had cut out using a scalloped die from the Stitched Be Mine dies collection.
I added a little baker’s twine and a few sequins, and called it a day.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card! Your coloring is wonderful and I can’t believe you snipped all that out! you have a lot of patience!
Oh Amy! This card is just gorgeous! I love those birds! Your colouring and the background are just amazing! Hopefully fall gets to you soon! I kinda wish the cooler weather held off a bit, I’m not quite ready to give into the cold!
This is GORGEOUS!! I love your coloring of the bird and the pretty strip of paper with the underlying “lace” border. The use of the shading in the background is marvelous too!
Amy, this card is just simply gorgeous! It is so clean and elegant looking. I love everything about it. I will have to CAS(E) if it is ok. This is one of the prettiest DSP’s SU has ever had. I love making cards from it.
They are absolutely charming. I love the hint of Pool Party behind them to make them pop – and the dainty look of the classic paper and scallops.
This is really exceptional. Every single detail is perfect. Just gorgeous!
The sweetest image ever, Amy! Those soft color little birds are delightful.
