Freshly Made Sketches #391

Hey Everyone

There’s a new sketch challenge for you to try at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch designer is the super talented, and one amazing combiner of colour combinations, Amy O’Neill.

Take a look at her fab sketch:

I am in LOVE with the Sailing Home Stamp Set. I think I might even be reaching for this set before my flower stamp sets! Shocking isn’t it?! I’m on a masculine card making roll at the moment and don’t want to break it as I need more man cards in my stash.

I’ve watercoloured the anchor and lighthouse with Soft Suede Ink to add shadowing and depth.  I tied a knot to a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and adhered it to my card with a loop held by Glue Dots.  The Pear Pizzazz foliage and Soft Suede rope edgelit have been cut with the matching Smooth Sailing Dies.  The stripe-y DSP in the background is from the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.

The Clean Team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards using Amy’s sketch.  Head over the the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is so clean and crisp! I particularly like your selective water coloring. I love this set as it reminds me of the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse in my hometown of Virginia Beach. I ordered it yesterday and can’t wait to play with it!

  2. Love your lighthouse card!! It looks like you stamped in Night of Navy; how did you water color it without smearing the blue ink?? I’m having a hard time coloring my own images. Thanks a lot.

  3. This card is amazing Narelle! I love all the different layers! You are totally making me want this set! Definitely an amazing masculine card!

  4. You have rocked this design. The layering is spot on as usual and I love all your little details.

  5. Goodness, your cards are just magnificent, Narelle! Everything about this is perfect. I LOVE the soft color scheme, especially as everyone goes right for the red and blue (including me). Perfect 10!
