You are Tough

Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous sketch today comes from our own super-talented Jennifer Timko.


And here's my card:


I used a NBUS stamp set called Hello Love by Unity Stamps.  It was seeing the amazing cards made by my blogging friend Lee Ann Barrett with this company's stamps that made me place an order :) I stamped the woman and colored her with Copic markers.  To make the image fit with the sketch, I cut my card base a bit smaller than normal, making it 4" x 5",  A little strip of Limeade Ice cardstock was adhered to the image panel and both panels were popped up on foam tape onto the card base.

Because of the tone of the sentiment (which I love!) I deliberately didn't add any frou frou or embellishments.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations - they are fabulous as usual!

Products used:

Stamps:  Hello Love (Unity Stamp Co)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT)
Cardstock:  Stampers Select White, Limeade Ice (PTI)
Accessories:  Copic Markers

Cheers
Karren
