Freshly Made Sketch #269

January 7, 2017

The sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches was open to lots of interpretation.  I decided to break out some new product on my creation.  I used copy paper to mask the left hand side of Whisper White card and then stamped the Watercolour Wash background onto the card using Soft Sky ink.  I removed the copy paper mask and ran two rows of  Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape down the left hand side.  I stamped the greeting from the So In Love stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner using Night of Navy ink.016  I attached the stamped panel to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  I cut the string of dragonflies from Night of Navy card  using the  Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies and attached them over the Watercolour Wash background.017

Inside the card I simply ran the two strips of  Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape down the left hand side.

A very, very simple card and I like it a lot.  In fact I like it so much it will be part of my class at Beachmere when they start again.  However, I realised after I had finished that I added the Washi Tape in the wrong order to be exactly like the sketch.  I should have had the wider Washi Tape close to the left hand edge.  But never mind, I am quite happy with the card and I simply love the dragonflies.  I will have to spend some more time with these products creating.  What do you think?

    Lovely card Kris. Can’t go wrong with this colour. I just used this DSP, not the Washi Tape for a project. Love your take on the sketch.

    Thank you Vicky. I was a little unhappy with myself when I realised my mistake but it still works.
