Freshly Made Sketches #400 – An Anniversary Celebration

Hey Everyone

We are celebrating our 400th sketch challenge at Freshly Made SketchesWe are kicking off a big month of celebration by going back to where we began.  Eight years ago, Lesley Croghan came up with the idea of using sketches that were clean (but not always simple) as a design tool. Not only was she on to something that would become a staple for crafters, she also put together a team that would grow and impact many designers. Two of the original team members, Jen Mitchell and Linda Callahan, are still on the team! So this week we are using FMS #1, which was also FMS #100! We have lots of celebrating to do all month too. We hope you will join us this week and, as always, we can’t wait to see what you create!

I remember playing along with the very first Freshly Made Sketches sketch and then again for sketch 100. I’ve taken a look at these cards, and have judged them as not worth for linking….. I may’ve moved on from those cards I created…..
The card I’ve created for this challenge features roses from To A Wild Rose Stamp Set.  I like the way the roses fill up my card and I hope you think they work well for the sketch.  The roses have been watercoloured lightly with Pineapple Punch Ink. The leaves were given colour with Mint Macaron Ink and match the DSP rectangle I’ve used – this DSP is from Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  The background ink splatters are from Artisan Textures Stamp Set.  I’ve inked them up with Mint Macaron Ink also.

We would love it if you could you join in our celebration month of sketches.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see all the fabulous creations the team have designed.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is another wonderful example of your special talent to combine lots of layers and yet still have a card that is super clean! I, for one, would love to see your cards for #1 and #100 – I suspect they are just as beautiful! 🙂
