Freshly Made Sketches 18

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Welcome to another exciting week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Last week an amazing 85 people participated in our challenge.  I guess that means there's a whole lot of love in the world for clean cards!  For this week's challenge, designed by Linda, I went way into the vault and found some retired designer paper called Parisian Breeze that hadn't seen the light of day in ages!


The designer paper is extra special because it's quite heavy-weight and is textured.  I love it, which means that I hoard it and have tons of it left!  I stamped the flower from Simply Soft in Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze onto watercolor paper because the texture of it is very similar to the texture of the dsp.  Then I highlighted the stamens of the flower with my Chocolate Chip marker to make them stand out a little more.  Finally, I used a bit of Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon adhered with a retired brad from a set called Sending Love.


The Freshly Made Sketches design team has some wonderful inspiration for you so be sure to stop by and show them some love.  Then head on back to the FMS blog and use the linky tool to show us your creation!

OK I have everything you used here in my "vault!" I will be dragging it all out this weekend to do this - I love how this turned out!

So pretty, Jen! Someone gave me a few sheets of that paper and I love looking at it. :)

I agree that clean cards are very popular right now. I'd love to join in with FMS but can't because my blog is also my shop window! Love your card with those beautiful soft colours.

This is so beautiful, Jen! I agree - I just love this DSP as well and I'm just as guilty of hoarding it. LOL

Narelle Farrugia said...

As soon as I saw your DSP I though of mine and how I won't use it because I've got hardly any left. I should learn to hoard! Love your card Jen
