Scribble Thanks

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch this week is from the very talented Kim Singdahlsen.


I used my new Papertrey Ink goodies again for this card - including the Linen Impression Plate which I've wanted since it was first introduced!


I started with a Tangerine Tango card base which I ran through with the Linen plate to give some subtle texture.  The white panel was stamped with the Circle Scribbles stamp set in both Tangerine Tango and Calypso Coral and was then also run through with the Linen plate.  I sewed some vellum onto the card base using three rows of stitching as per the sketch but it didn't show up enough so I covered that up with twine.

The Wet Paint die was cut from black cardstock then clear embossed several times to give it a glossy, raised finish.

Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you so I hope you go visit them.

Products used:

Stamps:  Circle Scribbles (PTI)
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Calypso Coral, Versamark
Cardstock:  Tangerine Tango, Vellum, White
Accessories:  Wet Paint die, clear EP, black button, orange striped twine, scallop die (SU), Linen Impression Plate (PTI)

Cheers
Karren

Marvelous Karren! The scribbly circles, although not symmetrical, are astonishing and statuesque. Well done!
