Freshly Made Sketch #298

July 31, 2017

The sketch challenge at Freshly Made this week is a kind of interesting one.  It lends itself to all sorts of interpretations but I chose to go with simple.  I attached a narrow strip of Be Merry Designer Series paper to Smoky Slate card.  The panel is attached across Whisper White card, before attaching to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.  I stamped the starry swirly image from the Star of Light stamp set onto the top right and bottom left corners using Smoky Slate ink.  I stamped the greeting, also from the Star of Light stamp set onto the bottom left hand corner of the Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I cut the star image from Cherry Cobbler card using the Starlight Thinlits Dies.  I attached the star to the top right hand corner of the Whisper White card and added a Metal Rimmed Pearl to the centre.

To decorate the inside I created a designer series paper strip in the same manner as the one on the front of the card and attached it across the bottom of Whisper White card.  I stamped the starry, swirly image from the Star of Light stamp set across the centre of the Whisper White card.

I am sorry if you can’t see the swirly image, the Smoky Slate is a little hard to see in my photos, but it really does add a lot to the card.

It’s a simple card, but kind of special too.  I love the colour combination, the Smoky Slate gives a real “silver” feel to the card.  What do you think?

Bye for now,

Kris
