Welcome to Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Day! This week, the talented and oh-so-funny Linda Callahan is our host and she has given us a very trendy sketch. Check it out:
Diagonal elements are very trendy now and luckily, I'd just received an order of Lil Inker dies that included the On the Diagonal die, so it was put to use on my card.
I started with a Crumb Cake card base and "finger-walked" the Dictionary background stamp onto a piece of Whisper White using Crumb Cake ink.
The flowers were made using some white tissue paper which I colored using Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight ink. For the orange flowers, I actually sponged Tangerine Tango ink onto both sides of the tissue paper. By the time I got to the yellow flower, I was sick of that, so just used the Direct-to-Paper technique and smeared Daffodil Delight ink straight onto the tissue paper. I cut about six scalloped circles out for each flower and squished them up.
The diagonal panel was cut with the Lil Inkers die then I stuck little strips of cardstock to keep as close to the sketch as possible. The sentiment was die cut and painted with Wink of Stella so has a lovely shimmer in real life.
I'm also entering this card in the Fusion challenge. The inspiration I took from the photo was the flowers and the text.
Thanks for visiting. Check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team!
