Freshly Made Sketches 26

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

This week at Freshly Made Sketches I've designed the sketch!  For me, it's always a little nerve-wracking when my turn comes around because I'm never sure if my sketch is a good idea or not.  The amazing design team created some beautiful cards with it, so I guess it passes muster.  I hope you all like it and have a chance to play along with us this week.

I used the pretty paper from Twitterpated for my background and stamped the floral image from Bordering on Romance.  That was colored in with my markers, then I highlighted the center of the flowers with some Riding Hood Red pastel.  It's been a long time since my pastels have seen the light of day!  I added a black brad in the centers of the flowers to make it really distinct.

The super-talented Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some beautiful cards to show off this week, so be sure to check them out.  And don't forget to play along with us!

So pretty, Jen! I think I own some pastels, but I'm pretty sure they haven't been used in way over a year now! Yikes!

Yes, it definitely passes muster! LOL! This is a wonderful sketch and your card is lovely! Those flowers are really pretty and the ribbon is cool.

Oh, yes...this sketch is fantastic. Not sure I used that circle shape to its full potential but some days are just like that. You, however, used it perfectly! Love the coloring on the flowers! Beautiful!

Thanks for the sketch! I loved how you have that curved element behind the picture of the flowers! That's a great idea!
