Freshly Made Sketches #427

Hey Everyone

Wednesday’s mean a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week the sketch has been designed by me!

When I designed this sketch I had absolutely no clue what stamp set I was going to use.  Admittedly this card took me longer than usual as I overthought it and ended up settling on Forever Blossoms Stamp Set. I LOVE colouring this image and went to town on colouring this blossom branch with a combination of Real Red and Cherry Cobbler Blends. The leaves have been coloured with Mint Macaron Blends.  To add more definition to the petals and leaves, I added Smoky Slate Blends at the base of them.  I also added some white highlights to the centre of the flowers with my White Gel Pen.

To add some interest to the base of the card, I took one of the ink splatter stamps from Artisan Textures Stamp Set and inked it up with Gold Delicata Ink. I then took a piece from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper, one of my favourites, and added it to my card.  Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon hasn’t left my desk as I am using it so often.  I couldn’t resist adding it to my card.  I’ve used Glue Dots to give it a bunched looked under my sentiment.  The sentiment added to my card is from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set also.  Three little Metallic Pearls finished off my card.

The creative team at Freshly Made Sketches have designed wonderful cards using my sketch.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
