Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate 400!!!

It's the last week of our month-long celebration of our 400th sketch!  But before we get to the actual sketch, I have to tell you about the amazing crafting companies that we all get to work with.  We reached out to see who would want to celebrate along with us and look who joined in!

At the end of the week, we will randomly be selecting the winners of these prizes.  All details are on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.  Thank you so very much to all of our sponsors.

Here is our 400th sketch.

Last week, I used a die from Floral Squares dies from Pinkfresh Studios and before I put them away, it dawned on my that the set would be perfect this week too!  Here's another of the flowers, with a cheerful background I created with Distress Oxide ink.

FMS 400-4

I cut the strips a little bit bigger than is shown because I wanted to trim off the darker edges you get when you blend on and off the edge of the cardstock.  I sponged heavier in the middle and faded out.  Finally I sprinkled on some white for texture.

FMS 400-4 Flat

I found a long, skinny sentiment so that it was long enough to match the sketch and used the very narrow sentiment dies from Neat & Tangled.  It was all so very simple - and I love the result!!

Definitely be sure to play along this week - so many amazing prizes!!  I look forward to seeing everything in the gallery; I get so much inspiration by seeing what everybody else does with the same sketch!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink The Skinny
Dies: Pinkfresh Studios Floral Squares, Neat & Tangled Skinny Strips dies
