Freshly Made Sketches 192

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm the hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and I had a hard time deciding what looked good with this sketch!  I made two cards, one of which was pretty awful, before I went back to the drawing board and made a card with a format that is very familiar to me.




My teamies at Freshly Made Sketches have all made some beauties with this sketch so make sure you check them out.  I hope you have time to join us in the gallery this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Off the Grid, Gorgeous Grunge (SU), Textures 2 (Florileges Design), Hashtag (Tim Holtz)
Paper: classic White (Flourishes), Basic Black (SU)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versamark), Berry Sorbet (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Leafy Branch die (Taylored Expressions)

You always rock the sketches Jen! I am loving those striking colours - you really know how to make white space work!

I am so loving all of your designs lately, Jen. They are clean, fresh, yet they have so much interest. Love the white space, but still such a complete layered look. Your choice of stamps and colors are always perfect.
