Freshly Made Sketches 9

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

This week at Freshly Made Sketches we've got a wonderful sketch designed by Tui.  There are so many possibilities with this sketch, I can't wait to see how everyone interprets it!  And this month we are joined by two fabulous stampers, Lauri Ingram and Christy Q as our guest designers.

I've been anxiously awaiting the perfect opportunity to ink up my brand new Field Flower stamp set, and this sketch is absolutely perfect for it.  I had been seeing a whole lot of fabulous cards made with this set, so I had to have it!


I stamped the stem and leaves from Field Flowers in Old Olive onto the wonderful Newsprint designer paper which I then layered onto some Basic Black and Calypso Coral.  Then I stamped the flower from the same stamp set twice in Calypso Coral and cut them out so that I could position them onto the stem where I wanted them.  The sentiment is from Fabulous Phrases and is punched out with the Word Window punch.  It's then finished off with an Antique Brad.

Now I hope that you'll join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  And if you need some inspiration, be sure to visit our amazing design team.

I keep looking at this set thinking I need it. I LOVE it stamped on the newsprint paper. The colors you used are just perfect! I struggle with coral, but obviously it just needs to be paired with neutrals to shine. :)

Christy Q said...

Count me among those who have been eyeing this set as well - Jen, you really did a phenomenal job with this set and I think you sold me. :) it looks fabulous on the newsprint background and the coral is the perfect punch of color.
