Freshly Made Sketches 209

Hello peeps! Happy FRIDAY! It was another beautiful day in Manhattan yesterday, nice and sunny and warm! I hung out with Anna at The Ink Pad and helped a little bit more with the order that they received. I also got to meet the very nice lady that creates The Ton Coture Stamps. Her name is Effie Cho and she said that she liked the card that I made using her Large Peony Set from yesterday! So cool when you get to meet the people behind the products that you use! Today I’m going to see Renee for a bit in the morning and then work on a few projects when I get back. What’s on for you guys?!

My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jen B….

Freshly Made Sketches 209

A very clean sketch indeed! The card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my background I used a piece of Solar White 80lb and spattered it with a mix of Royal Langnickel Prussian Blue Watercolor, Windsor & Newton Iridescent Medium and water. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The snowflake and thanks are both cut from a piece of paper from the Recollections Midnight Magic 6×6 Pad using the Simon Says Stamp Nadine Snowflake Die and the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Die. I adhered them to the background with Multi-Matte Medium. You know what’s coming next! LOL! Some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Gold Sequins are sprinkled about for a little more shine! I love the fun spatter concoction and can’t wait to make it in other colors and the snowflake has a very 20’s feel to it! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for stopping by today, have an amazing Friday! πŸ™‚
