Doodlebuds

Hi and welcome and Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Day!  This week our hostess is the fabulous and oh-so-talented Cindy Lovell.  



I used the wonderful card at Tag You're It and was inspired by the image covering two tags, the stenciling as well as the colors on the tags.  This is what I came up with:


I stenciled the Desert Storm card base using Crumb Cake ink and Latticework stencil.  I used my Misti to stamp the flowers on the tags with black ink before clear embossing the images.  I then colored using Prismacolors and Gamsol.  I used foam tape to adhere the tags together.

I white embossed the "hello" onto the bottom of the card.  The Midnight Muse strip was made using a die from one of MFT's Tag Builder sets.  The striped twine finished off the card.



Thanks for visiting.  Here's the inspiration from Tag You're It:


Products used:

Stamps:  Doodlebuds (WP9)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark, Crumb Cake
Cardstock:  Desert Storm, white, Midnight Muse
Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, clear EP, Blue Jay twine (Lawn Fawn), Blueprints Tag Builder 1 and 2 (MFT)

Cheers
Karren
