Freshly Made Sketches 229!

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

This week at Freshly Made Sketches we've got a fantastic sketch designed by Cindy Hall.  As soon as I saw it I had a vague idea to use a film strip stamp that I've had for ages and never used.  I wasn't really sure how it was going to come together but I was determined to use that stamp!

I used some washi for the vertical layer then arranged the film strip images like the diamonds in the sketch.  I am following the color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations so I added an orange flower and some greenery.  I love this color combo!

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has put together some beautiful cards to amaze and delight you - not to mention that they will get your creative juices flowing.  So be sure to check them out and join us in the gallery this week!
