Freshly Made Sketches 129

Yesterday was a nice quiet day all around. Work was low key, a very nice change to the usual! I got home and relaxed for a bit and worked on some projects. I even watched some TV! Today will be more of the same, it’s supposed to rain so it will be a good day to be crafty!

My post for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and this week Jen M. has this for us…

Freshly Made Sketches #129

I had the urge to use my Aquapainter which I haven’t done in a really long time. My card base is So Saffron Card Stock. I used a piece of Watercolor Paper and heat embossed the flowers from the Sumer Silhouettes Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My Aquapainter and some Bermuda Bay Re-Inker is used to color the paper making the flowers really stand out. Across the middle is a piece of Whisper White with another stamp from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set stamped in Bermuda Bay and backed with a piece of Bermuda Bay. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. My greeting is from the Hip Notes Stamp Set and is stapes in Bermuda Bay on one of the Essentials Wooden Elements. I really like the way the watercoloring came out, I have to do that more often! Thank you so much for checking in with me today! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches and that you all have a great Saturday! 🙂
