It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is the ever-talented Jen Mitchell. Take a look at her fun sketch:
This sketch stumped me for a while. Then I decided to take some creative liberties and instead of using two rectangles, I’d use two large blooms. Hmmm…Maybe that was a big leap. But hopefully, you can see the sketch in my card. Just squint a little (or a lot).
I pulled out three different sets of dies for this card. The first is the pretty lattice background, which comes from the Organic Beauty Dies. Ever buy a set of dies for just one die? Yeah, that’s what I did here.
I stamped the flowers and cut them out with their coordinating dies. They are part of the Abigail Rose suite. I colored them with alcohol markers.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set but was cut out with a die from the Sending Dies collection. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock.
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!
