I’m here on a Saturday again joining in over at Freshly Made Sketches, I have been really enjoying using sketches to push my cardmaking out of my comfort zone. I have to admit, when I first looked at the sketch for this week, I panicked! I don’t tend to make cards with lots of layers, I don’t really know why, because I think I should!
So, the very first thing I do when I get my hands on a new sketch is to stand in front of my stamp sets. This week I came up with nothing, I try and check the sketch early in the week, after its release on Tuesday. This week when I looked on Tuesday night, I stood in front of those stamp sets, and stood, and stood. Inspiration escaped me. Completely.
I grabbed the sketch again on Friday, and took more notice of the images. I try to just see shape when I look at a sketch, and I’m always tempted to turn things around. But this week, just getting something made was more important. So the flowers jumped out at me, and I ran through my collection looking for small floral stamps with coordinating punches – Petite Petals and Something To Say. I actually started from punches, and then looked for stamps to coordinate; Petite Petals and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
In order to keep things simple I decided to stick to two colours (plus Whisper White) and used Pear Pizzazz card stock and ink, along with Early Espresso for depth.
