Gee these weeks are flying by quickly! In my job I work on a three monthly basis. At the moment I am writing rosters for August and that seems unbelievable that the year will over before I know it!
As it’s Wednesday, that means we have a new sketch for you to play along with at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch designer is none other than the amazing Jacquie Southas. She has created a fabulous sketch that had me completing my card in no-time!
Before you say it, I know I have an addiction to the Sailing Home Bundle. If you’re on a confident masculine card roll, why mess with it and change stamp sets? It’s not often I create man cards, so I’m sticking with them for the time being. I may have another card using this stamp set to post tomorrow……so pop back to see how I’ve used this set and hopefully inspire you to create some man cards with it.
For this card, I’ve stamped the yachts with Black Memento Ink and given them a light watercolour with Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede Inks. For the background I’ve added a piece of striped DSP from the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack. I then added a Smoky Slate seaweed diecut and rope edgelit cut with my Smooth Sailing Dies.
The sentiment I’ve used on my card is from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set. To tie in the Bermuda Bay watercolouring, I added a torn piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock under the sentiment. For the banners on the side of my card, I added some Basic Pearls that have been coloured with my Smoky Slate Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker.
The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards that will no doubt inspire you, so head over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.
Thanks for stopping by.
