Freshly Made Sketches 357

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

It's hard to believe it's October already but the calendar doesn't lie!  So to start off October I've got a new card to show you for our latest challenge at Freshly Made SketchesCécile is our hostess this week and her sketch, at first glance, made me go hmmmm.

I think it was that vertical sentiment that initially gave me pause but once I got going on my card I loved that design element.  I chose the colors from the As You See It Challenge and combined the Diamond cue word at Addicted to CAS to create this.  Rather than add an additional layer for the sentiment I stamped these thoughtful words then drew lines around them with a Copic Multiliner pen to give the illusion of another layer.  For the diamonds I sponged colors through a stencil.

My Freshly Made Sketches teamies have created some beautiful cards with this sketch and I am sure they will inspire you to play along with us.

This is an amazing creation....this sketch made me go more than "hmmmmm"!!! As usual, you nailed it with your simple but striking design! It would also work for the Little Red Wagon challenge this's stencils!!

What a subtle and clever use of the challenge colours! Your sentiment, lined and not layered, is amazing. I was sure you'd layered it in - it even looked a different colour! Very stylish, Jen. Thank you for joining us at As You See It Challenge again.

What a cool and creative way of tackling all 3 challenges! With the diamond design and the colours, the stencilling reminds me of fashion snakeskin! I hope that isn't a negative connotation for you! It's really very beautiful! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge!
