Hi everyone and welcome back to Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch comes from our very own Artisan, Jennifer Timko!
I wanted to go masculine with my card, so I pulled out the Hardwood stamp, which had been sitting on my shelves for a few months and never inked up (NBUS!)
To get the aged look I wanted with the Hardwood stamp, I used the Direct to Paper technique to smear Sahara Sand ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock. I then inked up Hardwood in Early Espresso and stamped that on top.
Okay, had that done, but what next? After a few failed attempts using other stamps, I grabbed Meadow Greens and its matching die and created a fern using Very Vanilla cardstock and Pear Pizzazz ink. To make it stand out on the Pear Pizzazz tag, I placed a 2" circle die cut in Early Espresso underneath the fern.
Here's a peek at the very simple inside.
Thanks for looking. Do go check out the inspiration from the rest of my Design Team friends. You're sure to be inspired!
