Silent Scream

Hi there!  If you're looking for my Color Throwdown post, scroll down. 

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketch Challenge day!  Today, the wonderfully talented and expert-enabler Jen Mitchell is our hostess and she has an awesome sketch.


I just received an order from Verve the other day, so decided to use some of my NBUS on my card.


I stamped the coffee containers and colored them with Copics.  For the band, I stamped onto some foil patterned paper and did some paper piecing.  Whilst the center panel is perfect for patterned paper, I kept mine plain, just adding a sentiment from one of my new sets and a stacked die cut.  I went over the die cut with my clear Wink of Stella pen.



And that's it!  Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out how the rest of this amazing team have interpreted the sketch.

Products used:

Stamps:  Coffee, Better With You (Verve)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Desert Storm, Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Rosie's Wedding Paper Pack
Accessories:  Copics, Coffee word die (Verve), Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren
