It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
! Today we have a sketch by me!!
I put together this sketch with a long strip specifically for all the straight, simple sentiments that are coming out - then lots of open space for your imagination. I add the circle (or any shape or stamp) to suggest that you keep it all to one side. I love slightly off-kilter cards.
There is nothing unique or new about this card - but I so love the pop of fresh white and yellow daisies on a kraft background. I think I do the same combination every single year when spring starts to appear!
I started out with the daisies and my intent was to do a bank of daisies (thus the reason I did a circle on my sketch). But right next to the daisy dies in my binder was the die with the stem/leaves and I realized a bit of bright spring green would be a great addition. I added a bit of texture to fill up the background, a few sparkly sequins and a sweet sentiment - done!!
I hope to see you playing along! I am in awe of the creativity on display in our players' gallery each week!
