Freshly Made Sketches #430

Hey Everyone

We have a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch has been designed by the talented Jacquie Southas.

Before I started my card, I’d decided to use a different colour combination for me.  I chose Petal Pink and Call Me Clover – a combination I haven’t used before.  In fact, Call Me Clover would be the only green that hasn’t seen much ink on my projects. In order of greens, I would reach first for Pear Pizzazz, then Old Olive, Mint Macaron and then Soft Sea Foam.

I like to rotate my floral stamp sets so they all get a bit of love from me and so you don’t see the same images over and over on my cards. It was time that I used the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set and especially this Hibiscus Flower image.   I stamped the flowers in Black Memento Ink and then coloured the petals with Petal Pink Blends and Mango Melody Blends.  I took my Smoky Slate Blends and added colour around the centre of the flower to create depth to the image. The leaves have been coloured with my Call Me Clover Blends.

I used this script piece of DSP from Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper, because it’s Petal Pink and because I love it so much!  I added a Call Me Clover Cardstock diecut, cut with my Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I love me some bling, so I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Finally, I had a wood edgelit from the Country Club Elements sitting on my desk, so it got added to my card.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
