We’re back with another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today, and this week our hostess is the talented Jacquie Southas. Take a look at what she has for us:
This sketch was a little challenging for me. I just couldn’t figure out what to do with those three little strips. I’ve really been wanting to ink up the Easter Friends stamp set, so I decided I’d somehow make it work with the sketch. I may have stretched it a little bit, but hey, I decided to just go with it.
I started this card by blending some Pear Pizzazz ink along the bottom to represent a grassy field and then applied some Balmy Blue ink for the sky. I stamped three little tufts of grass to represent the three strips from the sketch — I know, it’s a stretch.
I stamped the cute little duckling with Basic Gray ink and colored him with my alcohol markers before cutting him out with my paper snips.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the little flowers and leaves are from the Peach dies collection. I colored some of the tiny pearls with an alcohol marker to put in their centers.
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 each week! 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!

This is ADORABLE! I keep looking at that set, thinking I have enough ducks and bunnies, but stop enabling!! I love your strips of grass and think it’s perfect for the sketch! Closer than mine! Ha. Just love this sweet card.
How fun is this scene, Amy! I love the clever way you included the three lines of grass.
This card is so cute! I love that little duckling! He looks so happy! Love the spring theme!
Adorable! Such a happy spring card!
