Freshly Made Sketches #281
Hello my lovelies! I hope you all had a good weekend and are having a great day so far!
Today there is another sketch on the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog and here is the sketch provided by Kim.
At first, I wasn't sure what I should do for the stripes, patterned papers maybe, stencilled stripes, heat embossed stripes, in the end I decided to go with dry embossed stripes made with my scoring board and a stylus. I don't think it shows very well in the pictures, but I think you will see them better in the close-up at the end. Here it is (details at bottom).
I dry embossed the stripes straight on to the card base. Next, I stamped the largest flower and leaves from Altenew's 'Beautiful Day' stamp set, adhered the leaves directly on to the base and popped the flower up on foam for a bit of dimension. As I haven't used gems in ages, I used a large one for the centre of the flower and two others for balance.
I finished off with a die-cut 'Hugs' . . . a Simon one . . . I think? A quick lick of 'Wink Of Stella' on the sentiment and a quick spritz of my home-made shimmer spray, and called it done!
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
