Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I love that this sketch was designed with patterned paper in mind. I have such a mountain of gorgeous designs that have to be used! To start though, I stamped out the gorgeous snowdrop vase from the Penny Black Wintry Whites mini set. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this last January but work/life was so crazy I never got round to using it then! So it has sat in my ‘new box’ for a year, waiting for its moment to shine. As a clutch of wild snowdrops have just started to bloom in my garden, I thought it would be perfect to use today!
One I coloured and fussy cut the image, I had to select the paper. I originally chose a striped design but I wasn’t too sure about it so I left it for a little while. When I got back to my craft table, I knew I had to use a non-patterned paper as I really wanted the delicate image to pop! So I chose some unpatterned paper from the same Basic Grey paper pad.
To complete my card, I stamped the sentiment (from an older Penny Black set) and added a few sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
I definitely have way too much sitting in my ‘new box’!! I see why you HAD to get this snowdrop vase!! It is lovely – and so beautiful with soft colors. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
