Freshly Made Sketches #208

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

It's time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our sketch is designed by Cindy Hall.  I do love a sketch with some great geometric shapes!


I flipped the sketch because I really wanted to use this subway style stamp from Verve and it fit better with a long and skinny layer rather than a short and fat one!  Originally I was going to use a poinsettia die cut out in vellum in place of the other rectangle but as I was looking through my stamps I found this pretty Christmas image and used that instead stamped in the gold Delicata ink.  It's so shimery in real life!

Our amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some beautiful cards to show you this week so be sure to stop by and see them.  I hope you'll have time to join us in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Joyous Noel, Peace on Earth (Verve)
Paper:  Kraft (Papertrey Ink); Truffle (Avery Elle); Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Truffle (Avery Elle); Delicata Gold 
Accessories:  Stitched Rectangle STAX, Blueprints 15 (My Favorite Things); burlap twine
