Happy Wednesday everyone! Welcome to our newest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch hostess is the wonderfully talented Jen Mitchell.
I am loving this sketch! Especially that tilted panel!
I chose the butterfly from Watercolor Wings to use on my main panel. The butterfly is stamped in So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Crumb Cake Inks. I then took my Black Journalling Pen and added some definition lines around the centre of the butterfly. I had some leaves cut with my Seasonal Layers Dies Thinlits Dies sitting discarded on my desk, so I added them for extra layers.
I added some Gold Sequin Trim and some Black Cord under my sentiment. For the background I stamped the watercolour type stamp in Soft Sea Foam. This stamp is from Love What You Do and it saves me time from having to watercolour the background myself – and I have to say it has a much better look than when I try it myself.
I then added the ink splatters from Timeless Textures in Basic Black Ink. My “Happy Birthday” sentiment is Beautiful Bouquet and “to you” is from a set that I have just forgotten and couldn’t find in the limited time I had to write this post….
Come and join us for this challenge! The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome inspiration for you. Head over to the challenge and take a look.
Thanks for stopping by.
It’s time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! This week our fabulous sketch has been designed by Cecile Ribon. Cecile would have to be the Queen of die usage and all things elegant.
Take a look at her sketch:
So first things first…..I kind of flipped the sentiment box and the layering one beneath it by accident. They were already stuck, photographed and added to my post before I realised I had them reversed….. Sorry Cecile! I’ll try and get it right next time!
Beautiful Bouquet and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies are the first thing I thought of when I saw Cecile’s sketch. The matching stamp and die set really fill up the card and add an elegance to the wedding card I created.
The combination of colours I used for my flowers are – Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry & Pool Party. I then stamped the centre of the flowers in Basic Black Ink as I really wanted them to stand out. The sentiment is also from Beautiful Bouquet and stamped it in Basic Black Ink to match the centre of the flowers.
Because I haven’t purchased myself a huge amount of new designer series papers yet, I decided to add thin strips of Whisper White Cardstock to my Pool Party triangles to add a little interest to the background. I actually don’t mind this look for a change and will have to remember to do it in the future as I think it jazzes up plain cardstock.
