It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week it is my turn to be the hostess. When I designed this sketch, I wanted to design a focal panel that could feature a stamped image or a large sentiment, or any other creative thing you can think of.
I love the sweet images in the Flight of Fancy stamp set. I stamped the image and colored it with my watercolor pencils and blender pen.
I added some strips of dsp from the Trimming the Town collection and cut out a frame from the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the focal image. The sentiment is from an old Paper Pumpkin stamp set.
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.
It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is Jen Brum, our lovely and talented Canadian friend. Take a look at this fun sketch:
Now I know it’s too early to start thinking about Halloween, but I recently got a few things from the new August-December mini catalog, and one of my favorite stamps is the adorable Flight of Fancy set, which covers three holidays — Christmas, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day. I thought the little witch would work well with the slanted feature on the card, so I went with that.
I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the image with Memento black ink. I then colored the piece with markers and mounted it on a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock, which was mounted on a Gray Granite card base sponged with a little ink of the same color.
The sentiment is from the new Hallows Night Magic stamp set and was embossed with some old shimmery black embossing powder.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to browse the gallery and admire your creativity. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
