I love the latest sketch on the Freshly Made Sketches site. It gives just enough structure, but allows for a lot of creativity.
Here’s my take on this sketch…
To create the background, I taped off a section of the card base and blended Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink over the Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil. This is the first time that I’ve used this stencil. I can see it’s going to be a new favorite!
Using Simon Says Stamp’s What’s Brewing stamp set, the coffee cup was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Faber Castell Aquarelle watercolor pencils. The heart accent was stamped with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink to coordinate with the stenciled background, and the sentiment was white heat embossed on black card stock. After fussy cutting the coffee mug and using a circle punch to cut out the heart accent, I was ready to put my card together.
To finish, I glued the sentiment strip onto the stenciled area and adhered the coffee mug with foam tape to give it a little dimension.
