It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week it is my pleasure to be the hostess, which means I get to provide the sketch for the week. I have a very simple collage-style sketch and I think it’s pretty versatile — you don’t have to use a leaf but can use any kind of image you prefer. Take a look:
I needed to make another Mother’s Day card and thought the new Hand-Penned Petals set would work perfectly with the sketch. This bundle has some of the prettiest dsp ever, and I had planned to use it on my Mother’s Day card, but then changed my mind on the dsp at the last minute.
I colored the focal image with my alcohol markers and then cut it out with a coordinating die. I love how the die cuts out those little bits between the leaves. I cut out the scalloped focal panel using a die from the new Scalloped Contours dies. I think I’m just going to leave this set of dies out on my desk because I think I’ll be getting a lot of use out of them!
The sentiment is from the A Wish for Everything stamp set. Some little sparkly gems from the Genial Gems collection were added as embellishments.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery. 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!
