Freshly Made Sketches #285
Hello lovely peeps! Today, I thought I would travel a little out of my comfort zone and go rustic! I have a love/hate relationship with kraft and rustic items . . . I LOVE them and the results other people get with them . . . they HATE me! When I use kraft/rustic embellishment, it always looks like I rummaged through my waste bin and grabbed a handful of waste and threw it on a card base (I don't of course, but that is what it looks like).
This time, I was pleasantly surprised . . . it didn't look half bad (for me). I made it with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge in mind, which, this week is a sketch by Amy. This is the sketch.
Great, isn't it? This is my take. Explanations below the pics.
First, I took a piece of card (from the back of an envelope, no point buying, when you can recycle, right?) and adhered it to the front of a card base.
Next, I took a small doily and adhered that down to the front of the card. Then, I cut a strip of jute 'ribbon' and adhered that. Next, I took my flowers and leaves and arranged them where I wanted them and adhered the leaves directly and the rose, up on foam for dimension.
I finished, by adding the stamped sentiment with glue to the flower and foam to the jute (to keep it level). Finally, a lick of Stella over the rose and three of my home made dew drops (haven't used them in a while). That's it done! I'm off crafting with the girls tonight, so have a good evening/day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing!
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.
