It's time for a brand new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! This week our sketch is designed by Jen Brum and it's got a very cool wavy line, which could be an ocean wave or a view of a landscape or really anything you can dream of. My imagination lead me to a very boring slanted line!
Now, I do actually own a set of wavy lines dies but I could not find them anywhere in my stash. I think they ran away with a particular "thanks" die that has also gone missing. I didn't trust myself to try and cut a wavy line free-hand so I just cut a couple of pieces of contrasting card stock on a diagonal. I used an embossing plate on the top one to give it a bit of texture. Then borrowing the feather theme and colors from the April challenge at House of Cards I stamped, embossed, and fussy cut these beautiful feathers from vellum. The color of the biggest feather is hard to see. I stamped it in the same color as the darker diagonal layer them embossed it with clear embossing powder, which tends to wash out the color. Luckily I had some Pool Party embossing powder, which I used on the smaller feather, so that one has a nice rich color.
Our Freshly Made Sketches design team has got some great cards to show you with this sketch to be sure to check them out. I hope to see you in the gallery!
