Freshly Made Sketches 87

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Hello everyone!  It's Wednesday and that means it's time to reveal the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Jen Timko is our hostess and she's given us this great CAS sketch.



I felt like I had been neglecting Wisteria Wonder since forever, so I really wanted to use it on my card this week.  I liked the idea of keeping it simple with a white background and some black for an accent.  Coincidentally, the other day while poking around Pinterest I found a website that was all about washi tape and it got me thinking that I haven't been all that inventive with it, so I was determined to use it on my card this week.  So I took a strip of Whisper White and covered it with this black and white script washi tape.  I put the tape on at an angle to make it a little more interesting.  I think it looks pretty good.  It's like I created my own DSP!

I wrapped a little crochet thread around the narrow vertical layers then added my favorite funky flowers.  The sentiment looked a little lonely so I stuck on a few black rhinestones for a little pizzazz.

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some great cards to inspire you this week so be sure to head on over there to check them out.  Then join us in the gallery, because we love to see what you do with our sketch!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Funky Florals, Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  washi tape, crochet thread, black rhinestones (KaiserCraft)

Well, you fooled me -- I never would have guessed this was washi tape. It looks like dsp. Love it! And I love these colors together. I'm going to write this down in my inspiration notebook because I struggle with Wisteria Wonder. Beautiful!
