Peek a Boo

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches where the lovely Cecile has a fun sketch to challenge you.

Luckily I didn't have to think too long before this idea popped into my head.  I white-embossed the background stamp onto watercolor cardstock then blended some distress inks over the panel.  I deliberately made the bottom darker to mimic the line in the sketch.



I die-cut a piece of vellum with various sized circle dies and then run both the watercolor panel and the vellum panel through a stitched frame die.  The stacked sentiment and sequins hold the vellum into place.


Thanks for visiting!  Please check out the fabulous creations made by the rest of the design team.

As suggested by my friend, Barb, I'm linking this card to the ombre challenge over at Addicted to CAS.

Such a brilliant take on the sketch! Your background is gorgeous and the die-cut vellum is such a clever way to represent the circles!

Big show off! This is brilliant! ;-) Love you!

Now that's a very clever interpretation of the sketch. You are so good at sponging colors and the vellum overly softens the whole look of your card. Love it!
