Welcome to Wednesday and the newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Our fabulous sketch has been designed by the fabulous Cecile Ribon! I love Cecile’s sketches as they are always so interesting and really test me.
The Prized Peony Stamp Set came to mind when I saw her sketch. I’ve paired my peony image with a piece of DSP the matching Peony Garden Designer Series Paper pack. I cut a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock into the same triangle shape so that I had two triangles. You may notice I don’t have a third triangle. This was because whichever colour I tried to add didn’t quite fit with me, so I added stamping to mimic the third triangle. This background stamping was done with the geometric background stamp found in the Prized Peony Stamp Set and Gray Granite Ink.
The flower that I have created, has been coloured with my Pool Party Blends. I then took the Light Bermuda Bay and Dark Smoky Slate Blends and added colour to the crease lines to create depth to the flower. The centre of the flower has been given a quick colour with the Dark So Saffron Blend.
The leaves that I have added to my card were discarded from another project. I’ve had them sitting on my desk for a few weeks and rather than throw them out, I’ve given them a home on my card. These leaves were created by taking some Pool Party Ink with my Aqua Painter and adding it to some Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Once the paper dried, I took the leaf die from the Forever Flourishing Dies and cut out two leaves.
As always, the girls at Freshly Made Sketches have created the most awesome cards. To be inspired by their awesomeness, head over to the blog and check out their cards.
