Freshly Made Sketches #10

I managed to get some time to stamp this afternoon... So, I thought I'd play along with Freshly Made Sketches. This is a great Sketch, you could actually do a lot with this one.

I'm not 100% happy with how my card came out. I was having some trouble with the Sentiment area that I created. I started with a Always Artichoke card base with a layer of Cherry Cobbler and some Sahara Sand and some retired Deck The Halls DSP. I sponged all my edges with some Crumb Cake ink.

For the setiment panel I started with some Sahara Sand and mounted it onto a piece of Always Artichoke. I stamped the Poinsettias from the set Bells & Boughs in Sahara Sand and then I colored them in with Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke ink using my Blender Pen I wanted them to be very soft.

Then I stamped the Sentiment from the same set in Early Espresso. It needed a little something so I added the Cherry Cobbler brads. Make sure you head over to Freshly Made Sketches and play along if you can. The Linky is open until Monday 14th. This really is a fun sketch!
