A Fresh and Fun Sketch



I finally had a little time to stamp a couple of cards today! If you've visited Beate's blog lately, you'll know that she's posted a sketch for you make a card from in order to qualify to win Fresh and Fun Freebies! I enjoy doing sketch challenges, so I really wanted to give this one a try. I got some new paper from My Mind's Eye Wild Aspargus. I was really attracted to this orange patterned paper, and I'm not usually an "orange" kind of person. I also thought this deep shade of blue went well with the orange. That's how I came up with the color combo. . .by just looking at colors of paper together. The watercoloring was taken from there. I especially LOVE how this new May Arts ribbon I got in my "package" the other day, matches the blue cardstock! What a fun sketch! Thanks, Beate, for the challenge! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Polka Dots & Paisley, Doodle This, Doodle That; Paper- DCWV Blue, brown, Wild Asparagus patterned paper; Ink- VersaMagic in Ocean Depth, Basic Brown, Pumpkin Pie; Accessories- May Arts ribbon, large oval punch, paper piercer, blue glitter glue, Aquapainter, blue bling.
