Mother Duck — FMS384

It’s already time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! The time is truly flying. My daughter is graduating next month, and she has a countdown clock on her phone. Every time I look at it, I am amazed at how quickly time is passing. I want to hack into her phone and slow that darn clock down. But I know that won’t work. Besides, I’m not technologically savvy enough to do that. Our good friend Linda, is our hostess this week. Not only does she make fabulous cards, but she is witty and fun, and she has a great sketch for us this week. Take a peek:

When I saw the focal panel, I immediately thought of the cute little ducks in the Fable Friends set.  I stamped the images on watercolor paper and used my aqua painter to color the scene with my ink pads.  Once I went to cut it out, I realized it was a little larger than I anticipated and that it wouldn’t work with the sketch.  So I decided to flip the orientation.  Yeah, it was one of those days.

As I was coloring this scene, I kept thinking how this is one lucky duck — her children are following along right behind her.  Two of my three ducks are wandering off in their own direction, as my oldest is several hours away at college and my middle child is about to graduate and go even farther away to school.  I guess even ducklings grow up and fly away.  I’m glad there are airplanes so I can fly and go see my ducklings.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create.  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!

A Squirrelly Sailor — FMS382

It’s time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our very talented friend, Jennifer Timko, is our hostess.  She has a sketch for us that should work with almost every style.  Take a look:

I’ve been working on some Easter projects and have been using the Fable Friends stamp set.  I knew it would be so fun to color with it.  When I sat down to make a card with this sketch, I thought I’d use an image from this stamp set that hadn’t seen ink yet for me.

I started by stamping this cute fella on watercolor paper, and then used an aquapainter and my ink pads to color him.  I hadn’t water colored in a long time because I’ve been using my markers so much lately.  I’d forgotten how fun it is to watercolor.

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!
