Freshly Made Sketches: You Are Too Kind

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch!!

It's a little nerve-wracking to put a sketch out there and hope that people like it enough to play along. But at the same time, it's very fun to see what you all do with it.  I hope you enjoy it.

I very carefully added the "any shapes" phrase to the sketch because I knew that I wanted to use butterflies - specifically the new Watercolor Wings from Stampin' Up.

FMS Too Kind

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team.  Just pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog.  And then I hope to see you play along!


I did use three retired Stampin' Up inks: Peach Parfait (with Pumpkin Pie for the orange butterfly), Coastal Cabana (with Pool Party for the blue butterfly), and Going Gray for the butterflies.  Also, you'll see that I used Papertrey's Smokey Shadow for the dark gray - I think a dark gray is the one thing that is missing from the Stampin' Up color line-up.  My Basic Gray ink is dark - but the paper isn't - so I tend to regularly bring out Smokey Shadow.

  7. Hello Kim and thank you for this fun sketch to play with this week, I love the way it's being interpreted on the gallery.
    Your card is made with one of my all time favorite sets, it's on my wish list for next month, (among other things, tee hee!!) I love how you stamped the butterflies on the side and then popped one in the middle, very striking.
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely card and for creating this fun, fun sketch.
