Freshly Made Sketches: Hey Sugar!

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

We seem to have had a lot of circles at Freshly Made Sketches lately!!  I've played a little loose with the sketches recently so I committed to myself that I was doing circles this week no matter what.  Since I somewhat obsessively index and tag all of my dies on my computer - I searched on "circles" and found a set called Candy Shoppe Shaker.

For the two background candies - I glittered the white circle.  For the blue candy - I used foam adhesive and acrylic to create a shaker filled with some seed beads.

I tend towards lots of white space but for some reason lately, plain white seems a little stark to me. It's a mood!  Last week when the mood hit, I got out some black acrylic paint and splattered.  This week I used a stencil and some shimmery mist to add polka dots.  It's hard to even see - but it added enough to satisfy my mood!

Personally, I'm a sugary candy person.  I won't turn down chocolate, but jelly beans or Skittles or Smarties - those are my real favorites.  So I had a great time creating these sparkly pieces of candy!  I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. I have got to say - when I first saw your card, I thought the sentiment read "Hey, sugar daddy" and I did a double-take :) . Gorgeous card and such a wonderful interpretation of the sketch.

  6. How adorable is this, Kim! I just love your candy shaker- sweet as can be!

  7. This could not be sweeter!! Also, Karren's comment made me choke on my coffee. :-) Love this as a shaker!
