Freshly Made Sketches #160

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our sketch is brought to us by the fabulously talented Rita Wright.  Thanks for a great sketch Rita – it’s so up my over-layered alley!

As you can see I’m still going through my Blendabilities colouring phase.  To give a bit of depth to the flowers, I’ve coloured over the Daffodil Delight with a bit of Rich Razzleberry in the centre of the blooms. The colour combination I’ve used is Hello Honey, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss – a combination I saw a girl at work wearing the other day.  It really appealed to me!  Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #130

Hey Everyone

Linda Callahan has designed this fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for us this week:

I decided to give watercolouring a go this week and found these pretty flowers from Happy Watercolor gave me the chance to practice my colouring.  The designer series papers I’ve used are from Stampin’ Up!s Retro Fresh DSP.  I’ve teamed them with Basic Gray cardstock.  The sentiment label I’ve used is from So Lovely and it give the flowers on it a little boost, I’ve coloured them with my Tangerine Tango marker (it was the closest orange marker I had on hand).

Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Clean Team.  We’d love to see what you create with Linda’s sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Deconstructed Sketch #136 & colourQ #226

Hey Everyone

I just love Jen’s sketches from The Deconstructed Sketch as I think they fit my over-layered card style.  I’ve combined this sketch challenge with the colour challenge at colourQ.  Here are their inspiration pics:

I’ve gone with some really old Stampin’ Up! designer series paper that I had stashed away in my cupboard.  I found some Pink Pirouette DSP back from when you could buy a whole pack of one colour and the chevron DSP is from a retired pack called Urban Oasis. I’ve also added a bit of Fan Fair DSP in there.  The flower stamp I’ve used is a new one from a set called Happy Watercolor and the sentiment is from Blooming with Kindness.  Here’s my card:
