Freshly Made Sketches 349

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

It's Wednesday so it's time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week Karren is our hostess and her sketch is classic!



I had SO much trouble with this sketch!  All that wide open space had me stumped until I saw the current challenge at Muse. I liked how Anita framed her card with floral images so I attempted to recreate that with these lilies.  The vertical layer was done with vellum.  I'm not crazy about this card.  The lilies look a bit like fireworks to me!

My Freshly Made Sketches teammates have made some fantastic cards with this sketch so be sure to check them out.  We hope to see you in the gallery!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Layered Lily (Altenew); Celebrate Big (My Favorite Things)
Paper:  White (Gina K); Vellum (Stampin' Up!)s
Ink:  Jet Black (Stazon); Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Grapevine (Altenew)
Accessories:  rhinestones (KaiserCraft)

Your Lilies are so pretty and your color palette is stunning, Jen! I also love your sentiment...it pairs perfectly with the sketch and with Anita's inspiration card!

Loving your interpretation with lilies. And the bold sentiments looks awesome on the torn vellum overlay. You should love this card, it's gorgeous.
Thanks so much for playing along at Muse, Anita x

Yay! Jen! Feel like we haven't seen you for a while -so glad you're back! Love the dimension in these flowers! Thanks for joining us at Muse this week!

This gorgeous card doesn't look like it gave you any grief, but I can totally relate the struggling with a card design - I made a card on the weekend that took me 3 hours! Yes, 3 hours!!! And there's not even anything special about it. But I digress. Those vibrant flowers really pop against the white space and the vellum is the perfect finishing touch.

Beautiful card Jen, love the flower you have used. Altenew really produces some stunning stamps. The colours you used perfect together.
