Freshly Made Sketches 142

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Wednesday's in my house mean a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week, the supremely talented Jen Brum is our hostess and she has created a sketch that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!


This is actually the second card that I made for this sketch this week.  The first had a misguided attempt at using an artsy paint splash stamp along with some washi tape and I just couldn't wrap my head around it. So I set about creating this card with it's stripey embossing paste which looks better with the floating dots.  Much better, I say to myself.

The bright colors come from the latest challenge at Just Us Girls.  When I first saw it my thought was to run in the opposite direction, but then I realized that a challenge is called a challenge for a reason and I figured I ought to at least try to play along.  In the end I'm glad I did because these bright colors are quite eye catching.



We'd love to see you in the gallery this week so why don't you check out the inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches design team then join us!  

Thanks for stopping by!

So want to have a go at that sketch - just love it (and those colours!) The extra big, bold sentiment looks fab against the orange background. Hope you're enjoying your time off Jen!
