Freshly Made Sketches 141

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Cindy Hall and she has come up with a super-fantastic sketch!  Cindy has got an amazing eye for design and it shows in her sketch this week.  Take a look!



I chose the colors for my card for no other reason that I happened to turn my eye onto my Marina Mist ink pad and realized that I hadn't used in in a while.  That's as good a reason as any, I think!  I stamped a distressed background first then stamped the floral images, coloring them with blender pens so that the color would look a little water-colory.  It actually came out better than I thought it would.

As you can imagine, the Freshly Made Sketches have cooked up some fantastic cards for you this week so make sure you check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

I would never have picked this was Marina Mist ink - it looks so soft and lovely (can you tell I'm not a fan of it normally??) Your grid background is perfect for each of the squares and really ties the whole design together beautifully.
