Freshly Made Sketches 198

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Happy Wednesday!  Of course today is the new sketch reveal at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is Cindy Lovell who has given us this very fun sketch!


I recently got these adorable new stamps and have been neglectful in getting them inked up. But the fun sketch got me thinking that this little bear, with his tower of gifts, would be a perfect image for it.  And I love that the topping at Seize the Birthday is embossing so I embossed the white layer with dots.  I always seem to forget that embossing is a great way to add some interest to white space.  Glad I remembered here!



Don't forget the countdown is on to our 200th sketch celebration at Freshly Made Sketches!  It's a wonderful milestone and to celebrate we've got a fun-tastic sketch and loads of sponsors to thank you all for playing along with us!  Stay tuned as we reveal all the details on August 19th!



But for now we've got this great sketch for you to play along with!  Our amazing design team has totally rocked the sketch this week so make sure you check it out.  And then get inky and join us in the gallery!
