Freshly Made Sketches

TGIF! Hope your week is going well. It's at the height of strawberry season here in VA so, I bought enough berries this morning to make a quadruple batch of freezer jam. Now, just so you know...we eat very little jam ourselves but it will go to our 3 adult kids and their families who love it! I took a break from that chore and created this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Loved this sketch and wanted to stencil a portion of the background. The flowers are a new fave die set - released this month at Ink to Paper. I had fun distressing this new vase design as well.  

STAMPS: Just Sentiments: Summer, Vase Collection 1 (Ink to Paper).

PAPER: Ranger water color paper; Simply Chartreuse, Dark Chocolate, White (Ink to Paper).

INK: Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Dried Marigold, Candied Apple, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain distress oxide inks by Ranger; Dark Chocolate by Ink to Paper.

DIES: Into the Blooms 2, Vase Collection 1 (Ink to Paper); Stitched Basic Elements Die-Namics by My Favorite Things.

OTHER: Jute twine; Modern stencils by Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!  ~Wanda

What a beautiful vase of flowers! I love the rich colors. And I love the background you created for it with the curved edge and the stencil. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
