Today I’m playing along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I decided to use stamps from the new Penny Black Delight release today. When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the beautiful Companions cling stamp (40-769) which I thought would fit perfectly on the right hand side of the card against an ink-blended background. I stamped the image in Antique Linen distress ink and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I couldn’t get the shimmer to show up in my photos sadly. After colouring, I masked off the image and created an ink-blended background, following the sketch. I think re-stamped the image to emphasise the lines (thank goodness for my MISTI!).
Finally I added a sentiment from the Thinking of You clear stamp set (30-825) and a few sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
What a perfectly balanced design, Lucie! Love the beautifully colored image, inked background and sentiment placement. Thanks for playing along with us at FMS this week.
This is so soft and pretty! A lovely card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
