Freshly Made Sketches 136

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Hey, hey happy Wednesday!  Today at Freshly Made Sketches our hostess is Amy.  If you don't know her I suggest popping on over to her blog to see her beautiful cards.  She's got a wonderful sense of color, her designs are so fresh and her cards always make me smile!  Her sketch this week is eye-poppingly good and I can't wait to see your creations light up the gallery!


I know I've been using washi tape a lot lately, but that is not washi tape on my card!  I've got some MFT dies that resemble ripped washi tape so I stamped some patterns then die cut the "tape" out of them (using the colors from The Paper Players, by the way).  I stamped a funky flower, a little texture and I was done!


Don't forget to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out our newest challenge.  The design team have got some great cards to show you too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Well, you fooled me with your faux washi tape! I love your collage-style look with the mix of patterns and fun pops of color. I love what you've done with the sketch.

I loved this card when I first saw it on the DT blog. That flower is just gorgeous and the "tape" is a great idea for the horizontal strips.
