Freshly Made Sketches 283

And we are at the weekend once again! We closed the Store a little early today, 3:00PM for Good Friday. When I came home Erika, Jason, Daniel and Tristan were at my Parent’s. I played with the kidsΒ for a while and had Pizzaz for dinner with them too. Around 7:00 I came home and watched the last three episodes of Th1rteen R3asons Why on Netflix. I highly recommend the series, the cast is excellent and it’s a very powerful show. Get your tissues out, it’s not a happy show but something that everyone should watch. I’ll be working on more projects at the Store today and we are closed for Easter Sunday! πŸ˜€

I love the nice simple sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and I have my card to share with you today…

I started by creating my background using Merman, Fresh Lavender and Freshly Cut Grass and applying them to a piece of Solar White 80lb with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. I cut the Lawn Fawn Road Border Lawn Cut from a piece of Black and also a Post-It to use as a mask while I applied my ink. The Road is adhered to the card and then the background is adhered to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Lawn Fawn Bicycle Built for You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black bending it slightly to follow the curve of the road. My car is from the Lawn Fawn Home for the Holidays Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. The Coordinating Lawn Cut is used to cut it out. Some clouds are cut out of Solar White 80lb and a piece of Silver Glitter Paper using the Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Clouds and Simple Puffy Cloud Frames Lawn Cuts. The frames are adhered to the clouds with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To adhere the car and clouds I used 3D Foam Squares. I do love an ink blended background, especially the purple to blue part! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by today! Have a super Saturday! πŸ™‚
