Freshly Made Sketches 247

Oh, and a very happy Friday to you! What a nice day I had yesterday! Peeps stopped by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to get their orders and Renee had her wood home decor project class. They made a beach ball to replace the “o” in home. It’s a really cute project! Angie was at the store today too which is always fun! She is a bad influence as we had Wendy’s for lunch! After work I headed straight over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. She made me dinner, a nice salad, and we chatted about the day. After a while she decided that she needed to go to Walmart. I got an aromatherapy diffuser that was 19.88 but rang up $158.98! WHAT?! Someone keyed in that price wrong! After a discussion with the manager I got it for $19.88 (which really was the correct price) she was convinced that it was more! This morning I have a haircut with my Jessica and then it’s off to the store to work on the rest of my cards for this month’s card class. I finished one today and I love the way it came out! Oh, while I was at the store yesterday I decided to give freehand watercoloring a try and this is what I came up with…

Watercolor Feather

I’m pretty pleased with it! Can’t wait to do some more!

I made my card at the store again yesterday! This one is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 247

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock cut to 3 1/2″ wide. I took a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card and used Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles Distress Ink and a Waterbrush to add color. After it was dry I heat embossed the leaves from the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder and then used the Lawn Fawn Heart Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut it out. It’s adhered to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive. My flowers are from the same set and are stamped in Dark Quartz and Butter Bar, they are cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts and adhered to the heart with Dot Runner and Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Love Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set, I die cut the love from a piece of Black 80lb and then coated it in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in more Copper Embossing Powder. Some more Dot Runner and Foam Tape adheres it to the card. It needed a little something so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Tangerine and Marigold and SIP Copper Sequins. I love the usual mix of colors and the Copper Embossing makes a nice change from Gold, wouldn’t you say?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by to see what I have been up to! Have a fun-tastic Friday! 🙂

  1. That was free hand…..OMG I cant draw a straight line. Oh… this card a lot. Hearts are my fav shape so automatically a win, but the colors so soft and subtle. And yes, Copper is the new go to. Well, I took today off of work, twins graduation party tomorrow. I have so much to do…..need to get off computer.

    1. LOL! Thanks Linda!! I was shocked myself! Glad that you like the card too! I thought the colors were fun and different! Love Copper!! Need some Copper Mirror Card! Good luck with your set up! Happy graduation to the twins! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin:

    You did a fantastic job with the feather. It is just gorgeous and worthy of framing if you ask me. I also liked the take you did on the sketch. I’m so glad you got me into that copper embossing powder. Just beautiful.

    Just got home. We have friends visiting from CT and Laurel and I went to the casino in Oxford for the day. Needless to say she won and I lost. That’s how it always goes when I go with her. LOL The guys did whatever guys do and then we all went out to dinner at 99. Just got home. It was a great day but a bit too hot and humid for my liking. So glad you have a Terrific Thursday and I hope your Friday was fantastic. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Grace! I am going to frame the feather, I really love the way it came out! I’m happy that you like the card too! Love that Copper Embossing Powder!
      Sounds like you had a nice day! So fun to have friends around and the Casino sounds cool! Sorry that you lost, maybe next time don’t take her! LOL! I enjoyed my day and am still loving the weather! Friday was pretty good! Hope you are enjoying the weekend! Love and hugs to you too! XOXO 🙂

  3. LOVE how you layered up the soft blue heart with the quartz and butter flowers!! The heart off the side is a fabulous look. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    (And that has to be a darn good infuser!!)

  4. The watercolor feather looks great, Justin! And I *heart* the Love card!!! 🙂
