Freshly Made Sketches #487

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch is a slimline card sketch. Our sketch has been designed by the super talented Jennifer Timko. Jen’s card are always so lovely and so creative. I love her sketches just as much as her cards.

When I get a challenge to create a slimline card, I try and fill the space with as many images as I can. These bird images from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set fill the space perfectly. I coloured the birds with the Light and Dark Poppy Parade Blends. I then took the Light Basic Black Blend and added some definition around the edge and wings on all birds. I took my retired White Gel Pen and added a highlight to their bellies and beaks.

I coloured the leaves and branches of the stem with Crumb Cake and Soft Succulent Blends. The flowers of this branch have been coloured with the Pale Papaya Blends. The fussy cut flower is also from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set. This flower has been coloured with my Pale Papaya Blends and the centre with the Light Poppy Parade Blend. By adding Poppy Parade to the centre of the flower, it tied the flower and birds together.

To soften the background of the Basic White Cardstock, I took some Pool Party Ink and a Blending Brush and shaded the background. I took some White Baker Twine and added this to my card with a bow nestled in the branches. The sentiment was placed after everything was adhered to finish off my card.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome slimline cards. Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
