Freshly Made Sketches 181

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Hello all!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week I am the hostess with the mostess and I hope there aren't too many groans out there when you see the sketch because it's got a tilted layer!


I really don't know what came over me when I designed this sketch because I'm not usually a tilted layer kind of person.  I guess I just wanted to mix things up a bit.  And, of course, I used a little poetic license for the horizontal layer on my own card by using this big die cut sentiment in its place.  I put two layers of black together then layered a pink layer on top slightly askew so that the black was visible behind it.

Once again our Freshly Made Sketches design team has done wonders with my little sketch and I know that everyone who joins us this week will too.  I love to see the many different designs in the gallery so I hope you'll make some time to join us.  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Abstract Poppies (Rubbernecker Stamps)
Paper:  Classic Ivory (Flourishes); Basic Black, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla (SU)
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  The Big the Bold and You die (Winnie & Walter); Pierced Rectangle STAX (My Favorite Things)

I love the stamped layers of these flowers. And the layered sentiment is perfect for the sketch. Tilted layers don't scare me -- I love this sketch.

Great sketch and a wonderful card! The colors you've used work so well together. I adore those flowers but I do not need them (I do not need them, I do not need them...)

Such a fun card Jen! Love the clean elegance! Especially love that tilted layer! Those flowers are so fabulous!!! Love the pink and black together!

I am loving these fabulous black line and soft ink designs you have been creating, Jen. It looks like we both had the same idea for using a die cut word in place of the horizontal panel, and both with a black back piece. I know you're not a tilted layer person, but I am, and I LOVED your sketch!
